We are an independent Christian intergenerational community of faith, welcoming people of diverse spiritual backgrounds who gather in weekly worship.

We are dedicated to serving one another in love and to extending support for the needs of the larger community and beyond.

We are an interdenominational church which is part of the

“Community Church Movement that calls Christians to unity without demands for uniformity, to dialogue without dictation, and to diversity without division.”

Connecting to the World

Serving each other and our neighbors in need through outreach and volunteer opportunities.

Our congregation is made up of several different traditions. Hence, our Vision is international, interracial and inclusive – and follows the principals of dialogue and diversity.

While seeking to foster our spiritual growth, we participate in the affairs of the larger society in which we exist, and strive to gain a deeper understanding of the world’s religions.

We wish to expand our concern and caring into the realm of environmental protection in order to become true stewards of this earth that God has granted to us.

Connecting to Each Other

Sustaining a vibrant community through music, events, social gatherings, groups, and committees.

“We give thanks for every faith tradition that brought you to us.”

Our pastor begins every Sunday service with this blessing, reflecting the spiritually diverse community at Annisquam Village Church.

Our congregation embraces many theological understandings, holding all in unity within our Christian faith.

We cherish openness, inclusiveness, and each other – and that’s a recipe for Connection.

What is Special about AVC?

Let Our Members Tell You

I find peace here.

And the church community makes me a better person.

When I need it, I feel this big hug.

The whole place embraces me.

Coming here is meditative, contemplative.

A time for quiet reflection.

We hold a lot of beliefs here in unity.

We hold space for all.

I seek wholeness, and I am here because there is so much room for everyone.
