Capital Campaign for the New Parish and Community Center

Here's a Sneak Peek of our New Parish and Community Center!

The First Church Renovation

Highlights of the New Center

The First Church renovation will transform a local landmark into a facility that will provide a welcoming gathering place for Woods Hole and the greater Falmouth community.

It will fulfill a wide range of needs: parish offices, including rector’s office, conference room, committee office, and music room. Upstairs will offer a spacious community room and a caterer-friendly kitchen. Outside a garden and patio will offer opportunities for warm weather activities and

Consolidating our campus on the north side of Church Street improves both safety and efficiency as we carry on our roles as a spiritual center for Woods Hole and as faithful stewards of the Church of the Messiah and the Woods Hole
Village Cemetery.
