What’s New:

Back to Our Future

A cornerstone of our history will become the key to our future. Church of theMessiah has a vision for the future: to continue to be a spiritual center for Woods Hole, to be a leader in community responsibility and conscience, and to be a welcoming haven for religious, social and family gatherings. Our capital campaign will address many considerations as we seek to make this vision a reality.

102_4247As a replacement for Fisher House, the renovated original building will become a modern, aesthetically pleasing, ecologically friendly facility. It will fulfill a wide range of needs and uses: church offices, a conference room, music room, library, commercial kitchen, and a spacious community room for functions large and small. The capital campaign will reinvigorate a landmark into a facility that all of Woods Hole will be proud to call its own. All renovations will be done respecting the architectural history of the building.

The renovation of the First Church will consolidate our physical properties on one side of Church Street, creating a contiguous campus, joining together the Parish Center, the Stone Church and the Village Cemetery. The sale of Fisher House will reinforce our financial foundation, making it possible for our Village Church to serve the community for another 160 years and beyond.
