Welcome to the Church of the Messiah in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. Serving as “the village church” in one of the world’s most prestigious scientific communities, we welcome all who visit no matter where they are on their spiritual journey.
Like the rest of the Episcopal Church, our parish is intentionally inclusive. The members of the Church of the Messiah range from infants and young children to elders; newcomers to Falmouth and Upper Cape communities to lifelong members who grew up in Woods Hole and Falmouth; people who have strong roots in the Episcopal Church and those who may or may not have been part of a church community before. No matter who we are and where we come from, all of us are seeking the Presence of God as known in the breaking of bread, sharing of fellowship, spiritual and intellectual inquiry and opportunities to serve God by serving others and the creation on which all life depends.
If you are seeking a place where your presence will be honored,
your mind challenged or your heart opened, welcome!
The Rev. Deborah M. Warner
