“No Such Thing as Silence”

James Stewart, Director of Music, with Geoff Duke, Worship Associate

There is no such thing as silence… especially when you’re planning to have a service outdoors… on the front steps of the Meeting House… facing Church Street… on a Sunday morning… in August! Join us for a meditative time as we listen to the traffic and the birds, the people and the aircraft, the wind and the leaves. Let’s see if we can’t discover music in the mundane and joy in the cacophony of everyday life. Bring a chair, bring a blanket, bring your voice, bring your breath, bring your heartbeat as we worship together out in the open. You and all your noises are welcome.


Please join us for Sunday morning worship at 10 a.m., which will be held outdoors at the First UU Society each week through September 3. The service will also be live-streamed. Find the livestream link and order of service on the Live-Streamed Worship page, or go to our YouTube channel.

Summer Garden Childcare will be available in the Memorial Garden. Following the service, all are welcome to Outdoor Coffee Hour.

There will be chairs, but feel free to bring your own portable chair, or a blanket if you’d like to sit on the ground. While at the Meeting House, anyone is welcome to wear a mask. In the spirit of caring for each other, please stay home if you have any cold or flu symptoms. Thank you.


In the event of inclement weather, Sunday services, childcare, and coffee hour will move indoors.
