We are excited to meet you!

The United Parish of Auburndale [64 Hancock Street] is located in Newton, MA across the street from Lasell College and within walking distance of the MBTA commuter rail (Auburndale) and the Greenline Subway (Riverside).  There are twenty-five to thirty parking spaces at the United Parish of Auburndale and street parking is unrestricted on Sundays and Saturdays.

We are a theologically liberal church. We do not insist that newcomers wishing to deepen their commitment to this faith community articulate a particular creed in order to become members.

We are inclusive of all people. Recognizing that people come to faith and churches for complex reasons, we simply endeavor to offer a sense of “home.”

See you soon,
