Capital Campaign for the new Parish and Community Center

The Love. The Space.

The First Church renovation will transform a community landmark into a facility that Woods Hole will be proud to call its own.

History

In the 1850s, Joseph Story Fay gave the village of Woods Hole its first church and Cape Cod its first Episcopal Church. He later donated a more substantial building, the Stone Church, which is the present home of the Church of the Messiah. Now, 160 years later, we are excited about transforming the First Church into a dynamic place that will serve as a vibrant spiritual and community center.

Renovation

The new center will fulfill a wide range of needs:

  • church offices
  • a conference room
  • music room
  • family room
  • a spacious community room and kitchen
  • an outside garden and patio.
