About First Church Williamstown

First Congregational Church Williamstown is a dynamic, hospitable, family-friendly hub where social justice, spirituality, and the arts intersect. We’ve been a gathering place, or meetinghouse, for the wider community since 1765. Today we build on our past to embrace a mission for the future. You are invited to explore these pages to learn more about who we are.
