Welcome to The First Church in Belmont, Unitarian Universalist. We are a mid-sized church of almost 400 families and individuals. From September through early June, we offer two worship services each Sunday at 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m., along with religious education classes for children (preschool through teen). Child care is available for younger children. On certain specified Sundays, announced in advance, there are changes in the schedule. Our social hour after each service is a wonderful way to meet people; our members make a special effort to greet visitors and new parishioners. During the summer, June 15 to September 2, there is a lay-led service at 9:30 a.m. Child care is available during the summer. .
