Who we are

Located in scenic Portsmouth NH, the North Church of Portsmouth, United Church of Christ, has been an integral part of the community for generations. Almost as old as Portsmouth (founded in 1623), the North Church has a rich heritage and tradition dating back to 1657, and in some ways to 1641.

Today the North Church of Portsmouth, UCC is a Christian Fellowship dedicated to the worship of God and the service of our fellow human beings in Christ’s name. As with most historically Congregational churches in New England, we have been a United Church of Christ church since the early 1960s.

Into our fellowship have come members from many communions and backgrounds. Here there are no strangers, for you are among friends. If you are new to the community, visiting us, or seeking a church home, we know that you will find kindred spirits in the North Church family.

We the members of the North Congregational Church family, a loving and compassionate people of faith, gathered to worship God, accept our responsibility to seek justice for all God’s people.
Inspired by the Holy Spirit, we resolve to share the Word of God with all those seeking spiritual growth.
Following Christ’s teachings and example, we accept and embrace the challenge of a changing church community, nation, and world as we strive to live out our faith.
