We are an Episcopal community of faith, founded in Newburyport in 1711 and still walking in the way of Jesus. We offer spiritual education and formation for children, teens, and adults.

Are you hungry?

Come and eat! Our Among Friends program serves free hot meals at 5:30pm each Monday and 11:30am each Tuesday and Friday. Meals are also available at other area congregations. Contributions and volunteers are gratefully accepted, but not required.
