Whoever you are, wherever you are on life's journey, you are welcome here.

                 Ashfield, Massachusetts


Our mission:
We are a small group, striving to be open and accepting, sometimes disagreeing yet loving one another, wading through the joy and pain of spiritual growth, who pledge to worship God together, follow the example of Jesus, embody God's holy spirit, support our church family, and serve our neighbors near and far.

Choir Schedule

In February the Choir at First Congregational Church plans to forget about cabin fever by enjoying Wednesday evening rehearsals, Sunday morning singing, the Hilltown Variety Show, and the annual "Save heat" potluck dinner and rehearsal. Music for the first two Sundays in the month will include early American anthems and African-American spirituals and Gospel settings. Some of this music will also be performed at the February 10th
Hilltown Variety Show to be held at the church, along with other music for choir and organ. On Sunday, Feb. 25, the Choir will sing Renaissance anthems for Lent.




Our Core Values

We, the members of First Congregational Church of Ashfield, instructed by Jesus to love God and our neighbors as ourselves, declare this an Open and Affirming church. We welcome all into the full life of the church, including fellowship, membership, leadership, and employment. We offer this without regard to sexual orientation, gender, marital status, family structure, race, religious background, mental or physical condition, age or ancestry. We commit to providing a safe haven for all - physically, emotionally, spiritually.
