New North Church engages with the community, locally and world-wide, in the following ways:
Fuel Assistance Program
New North Church has long maintained accounts with two local heating companies, Alvin Hollis and Williams Coal & Oil, our partners in this program, to assist individuals and families who struggle to heat their homes in the winter.
Each year, New North Church supports two children through their school years in countries such as Brazil , Indonesia , and the Philippines . The funds provide assistance for the whole family for education, health care, parental training, clothes and books.
New North Church supports the Hingham C.A.R.E.S Coalition by providing meeting space and extra hands to help them in their mission. The coalition aims to foster a strong and inclusive community that promotes choosing a healthy lifestyle and informed and responsible choices about drug and alcohol use. Find them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/hinghamcare/.
New North Church supports the Hingham Interfaith Food Pantry at Second Parish Church with regular monthly donations. For more information, e-mail hinghamfood at gmail.com or call 781-740-8180.
New North Church often opens its doors for public forums and discussions. This reflects our heritage as a leading light in the abolition movement in Massachusetts in the years before the Civil War. In the past, we have hosted a three-part series on Louisa May Alcott, her family, and her unique contribution to New England. Most recently, we hosted a panel discussion around the topic of the opioid addiction crisis afflicting southeastern Massachusetts. We take pride in our willingness to talk about anything.
On The Job and Beyond
This support group is open for anyone looking for a new job or occupational direction. The group meets every Monday from 8:30-10:00 a.m. (except holidays and Hingham school snow days) in the parlor.
