I find the space that is created in my small group to be most meaningful. In many ways, it is a place where people can reflect on the past and envision the future. The time during our small group is like suspended time, which in many ways allows for us to simply be.”
– Participant testimonial

Cakes XVAt North Parish, spiritual deepening and connection extend far beyond Sunday services. We offer many small group opportunities for spiritual practice, lasting friendships and caring community that are as diverse as our membership. For example, Soul Matters is open to new participants who are interested in exploring themes of belonging and meaning within a covenanted group of eight to ten members. The Book and Movie group meets in the parlor once a month for coffee, cookies and discussion. The Men’s Group gathers regularly for dinner or games. And, many of the women who have participated in the women’s spirituality class “Cakes for the Queen of Heaven” over the last 20 years continue to meet on a regular basis.

Below is a partial list of the small group offerings. If you are interested in joining a group, please contact us.
