Pilgrim United Church of Christ is located on Middle Road/Route 111A in Brentwood, NH with roots in Kingston and Brentwood. We are a Just Peace and an Open and Affirming congregation in the United Church of Christ, which means that no matter who you are or where you are from, you belong here. The UCC is a progressive denomination with a long history in New England.
We welcome all: rich and poor, black and white, gay and straight, believing and questioning. We believe that God is still speaking, that God spoke through the Bible and speaks in new ways to our current reality. We seek to change lives for the better by working for justice and peace in the world. When people asked Jesus about his ministry, his answer to them was “Come and See.” That is our invitation to you as well. Come and see what life is like at our church! All are welcome.
If you visit us, here is what you will find…Our worship style reflects our Congregational heritage. Our young people join us in worship. The choir sings every week. We also have a Tone Chime choir. There is a nursery space available if parents want to spend some time there with the littlest members of our community.
A support group gathers monthly for those dealing with loss. We are a supporting church for Seacoast Family Promise, an organization that provides meals for families who are temporarily homeless and we house the Community Food Pantry. Our church enjoys an exciting partnership with Gwenzi United Church of Christ in Zimbabwe. We serve wonderful community dinners and monthly Sunday morning breakfasts. And we are committed to doing our part to reduce our impact on the environment.
Most importantly, we come together to worship God, and to share Jesus’ love with all. Inspired by God’s Holy Spirit, we strive to provide an extravagant welcome to all, and to open the wonders of God’s presence to everyone. We comfort, encourage, challenge and support one another and reach out in care to neighbors near and far.
