My son just recently got married at the church and everyone there was beyond nice and helpful. Pastor Jeff did an exceptional job with the kids vows. Julia was so helpful as the wedding coordinator.

First Parish Church is located adjacent to Bowdoin College, and it is instrumental in the history of Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain and his wife Fannie. It is also connected with Harriet Beecher Stowe, who wrote Uncle Tom's Cabin. It is an easy walk from the Chamberlain House at Maine and Potter Streets.
