Join Us. All Are Welcome.
We begin our worship service every Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m. with these words, and they are words we take seriously. Our community was founded on the conviction that faith is too large to exclude. We are committed to a life of discipleship growing together in what it means to “love kindness, do justice and walk humbly with our God” (Micah 6:8).
Each Sunday, we gather for hybrid worship both online and in the main sanctuary of The Union Church in Waban (doors facing Collins Road). To join our Sunday worship on Zoom, please click here.
When worshiping together in-person, we meet in the main sanctuary of The Union Church in Waban, doors facing Collins Road. You can park in the church parking lot, or on the streets surrounding the church (Collins Road, Waban Avenue, Beacon Street). The Angier Elementary School parking lots are available on Sunday morning as well. Our church is next to the Waban MBTA stop on the Riverside/D line. So, public transportation is always an option.
For anyone with mobility concerns, cars can drive through the front circle and drop off visitors at a side door with elevator access.

What to Expect
A typical service begins with a welcome message and song, before children join for a special story or lesson and then head off to Sunday School. We then have a reading from the Bible, followed by a sermon that explores the Bible passage, and applies it to our lives today. After our sermon, we share time of prayer, followed by songs, offering, and announcements.
While our Pastors lead us in worship most Sundays, we believe we all have a voice to contribute and strive to make our worship reflect the diversity among us by incorporating lay leaders of all ages in reading, preaching and offering music.
Following worship, we gather in-person or on Zoom to share coffee, snacks and conversation.
Casual dress is fine, anyone is welcome and you don’t need to participate in any part of the service you don’t want to. There’s no need to bring anything — if you are in-person just grab a bulletin as you come in, which will help you to follow the service. The bulletin is also available online, and slides during the service help those on Zoom follow along!
From Our Members
Below are just a few voices of people who have found their home at The Union Church in Waban. There are as many testimonies as there are people in the pews, but what they all share is a sense of belonging, of having found a place where they feel welcomed and where they can grow and thrive. If you are interested in becoming a part of this vibrant and inclusive faith community, please reach out to our senior pastor or associate pastor.
“One of the things I really appreciate about the Union Church in Waban is that it is a community that lives its faith out into the world. Sure Sunday worship is really great but I love the way worship doesn’t just stop with Sunday but that worship extends out into how it is we live throughout the week.”
“I was not raised in the church, but always felt like I wanted to be a part of a faith community. The Union Church has been a great place for me because it welcomes people who are trying to work out what it is they believe and how that belief informs how we live. So I feel it’s a place I can come with my questions and that’s OK.”
“I wanted my kids to have the experience I had growing up in a church where there were people of all ages who loved me as if I were their own. No, not as if I were their own but because I was their own. The Union Church says that it cherishes children and young people. It does, my kids feel it and that is an amazing gift.”
