Holding a Candle

In the Fall and Spring all services are held at 10:30 a.m. in the church sanctuary.  Twice a month Reverend Inanna Arthen leads the service. 

We are also happy to provide a venue for the Petersham Jams, sponsored by another community organization:  a group of local musicians and music-lovers.  It is held in the Davis Memorial Building.  The calendar for Jams may be found here.

In January, February and March, services are held in the Davis Memorial Building to save on heating costs.  The Davis Memorial Building is located on West Street across the garden from the church itself.  Services are held at 10:30 a.m. with coffee and snacks served afterwards.
