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.



April 1st is Easter Sunday!

The Choir is preparing three upbeat twentieth century anthems by British composers: 

-- I Will Worship the Lord, a call to worship by John Rutter
-- Let All the World in Every Corner Sing by Hugh S. Roberton
-- With a Voice of Singing by Martin Shaw

Ted Murray and Andy Wells will be the Easter trumpeters, and Amy Roberts-Crawford will play both piano and organ.

The Choir will take a well-deserved break after Easter, and will sing again Sunday, April 15. Anthems for the rest of the month will include music for Holocaust Remembrance and Earth Day as well as additional music for the Easter season.
