Bicentennial Banner

Celebrating our 200th birthday!

We've been a part of the community for two centuries, and our members are active in numerous community projects and charitable activities. Our year-long festivities commemorate the founding of the First Universalist Church of Wakefield in 1813, when seven members from another church launched our congregation.
