Welcome to the homepage of Pilgrim United Church of Christ, Brentwood ~ Kingston!

We are so glad you’ve stopped by. Pilgrim UCC Church is a wonderful congregation rooted in the historic tradition of progressive Congregationalists. We are actively engaged in nurturing individual spiritual life and transforming the community in which we serve. Through ministries of an active Food Pantry, a shared effort of transitioning homeless families (Seacoast Family Promise which we share with 7 other neighboring congregations), study, prayer and great worship each week we seek to be the presence of Christ here and around the world.

We are newcomers and long-timers, young and elder, differing in perspective and background but find here a unique community of support and abiding love. We’d love to have you join us any Sunday at 10 am for worship—or for our open discussion each Friday discussion of the world’s events (also 10 am). Book studies, special time with children each week, and lots of shared meals keep us grounded and joyful!

Stop in or be in touch. We’d love to meet you.

Rev. Linda Lea Snyder
Interim Minister

Upcoming Events

Thursday, December 17th, 6:30 - 7:15 pm: BLUE CHRISTMAS WORSHIP - When the cheer of Christmas collides with reality
For many of us the good cheer of this season rings a little hollow because of a loss, illness, or life situation. The pressure to be “merry” is sometimes too much. This time of gathering offers a quiet space to consider the deeper meanings of the season, to hear healing words‐ from Scripture and other sources‐‐ and to be comforted by others experiencing similar feelings. There will be lovely music and you will be able to light a candle for the one you have lost if you’d like. We’ll gather for about 45 minutes in our beautifully decorated sanctuary. Everyone is very welcome to attend. At the church, 197 Middle Road (111-A).

Saturday December 12: Bluegrass Christmas Concert 7:30 pm At the church, 197 Middle Road (111-A).

Saturday December 5 9am - 1pm: This year's Pilgrim Christmas Fair on December 5th, 9- 1 promises to be the best ever! There will be delicious goodies for sale at our Bake Table, a wonderful Silent Auction, Lobster Rolls (and soups) for lunch, the usual and extravagant Cookie Walk-- and Fairly Traded items for sale. All this and more-- and ths year a mystery Santa will make a special appearance to greet the children-- and kids will have a craft room where they can make a simple bird feeder to take home. We hope you can join us. Bring along family and friends for this once-a-year gala celebration!

There will also be a White Elephant Table with many Christmas related items at the FAIR.
