Our faith inspires us to serve the world in love, working always towards the building-up of the kingdom of God. From growing organic produce in our churchyard for the Wellesley Food Pantry to partnering with Communities Without Borders to serve the Fumbelo community in Zambia, Village Church is a place dedicated to responding to the call of our times, both locally and globally. We believe that what happens in the church has the power to transform both our lives and our world. Won’t you join us?
Our faith tradition calls us to live according to the double-love commandment of Jesus—to love God and to love our neighbor, a word which in its etymology means “the nearest one.” From planting trees with MassReLeaf at the Wellesley Housing Authority Barton Road site, to hosting homeless families with Family Promise MetroWest, opportunities to serve God’s creation are never far away at Village Church. <read more>
Our faith teaches us that we are inextricably connected to our sisters and brothers throughout the world—that when one person suffers, we all suffer, and when one person rejoices, we all rejoice. Village Church sponsors regular service trips to Fumbelo, Zambia; to Quito, Ecuador; to the pueblos of New Mexico; and to the Dominican Republic; among other opportunities. <read more>
