Welcome to the website of the Unitarian Church of Sharon. We are a congregation of about 180 adult members, and 95 children and youth, located in the center of Sharon, Massachusetts at the corner of Depot and North Main Streets.
We are delighted to welcome all who wish to join us in church on Sunday, in Religious Education classes for children and adults, and at fellowship and social justice events.
Our Sunday morning worship services begin at 10:00 a.m. with a family service (adults and children) followed by a 10:30 a.m. adult service (while children attend their religious education classes). The adult service and the religious education classes both end at 11:30 a.m. and are followed by a time of refreshment and fellowship.
Please Note: From mid June until early September we are on a summer schedule and there will be only one morning Sunday service with child care. There will not be religious education during that period. Also, staff and minister office hours are altered during the summer months. However, you can always leave a message with any of the staff members, and they will respond as soon as possible.
While we take our faith seriously, we tend to be a fairly relaxed group, especially where dress is concerned. Wear whatever makes you comfortable, and know that you and your children don’t have to get dressed up to join us on Sunday.
Rev. Jolie Olivetti is the settled minister. Her office hours are posted on the home page. She can be reached at 781-784-3652 extension 2. Contact Rev. Jolie for an evening or weekend appointment.
Interim Director of Religious Education, Christine Bulman, is available Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 8:30 a.m.–2:30 p.m. She can be reached at 781-784-3652 extension 3; however, because the building is currently closed, it is best to reach her by e-mail.
Congregational Administrator, De’En Tarkpor can be reached at 781-784-3652 extension 1.
