Site Description

We are an in-between church, stretching ourselves to move from pastoral to program size, struggling with the many changes that the opportunity presented by a growing regional population invites us to undertake. A warm and friendly liberal congregation in the midst of a famously conservative city, we have found ways to do both spiritual growth and involvement with social concerns. We have an active volunteer base, a strong program of religious education for children and youth, and worship that feeds the soul. Located in downtown Manchester, we are more economically diverse than many UU congregations. While we are not yet truly multiracial or multicultural, the potential is there.

Stipend Expectation

This site meets the stipend expectation

Student Involvement

We can provide flexibility for our student, depending on the student's needs. Practice in leading elements of worship, involvement with committee work, "shadowing" the minister, program development, leading Children's Church circles -- we want you to learn parish ministry and we want to have your perspective on what we're doing. Our Parish Minister is generously available for theological reflection and supervision. Our Teaching Parish Committee is eager to help and knowledgable about congregational life.

Commitment to Educating Ministers

We have just (2007-08) had our first experience with a student minister, and we're very happy about it. Understanding that students are all different, we look forward to exploring the strengths and challenges facing another student preparing for UU ministry and finding activities within the congregation that will help.

Special Considerations

We do want a UUA student.
