Acton Congregational Church

In light of Governor Mills' recent announcement of the change of COVID protocols, the Acton Congregational Church has clarified its position on Summer Worship Services for the summer months. Based on recent survey results, impact to staff and volunteers, and logistical implications the church will continue to offer worship services outside in the parking lot. This will accommodate parishioners who wish to sit in the sun, sit under the trees or remain in their cars. Based on guidance from the CDC there will be no mask requirements or distancing requirements while outdoors. Singing is also permitted while outdoors. Bathroom facilities will continue to remain open. We encourage all attendees to use best practices to minimize their own risk while on the church property. Here is the latest guidance offered by the state CDC around singing indoors.: https://youtu.be/PYiDtfDsju4


Please join us for outdoor worship services every Sunday at 10:00.

Stay in your car or bring a lawn chair and sit outside!


Inside Masking Protocol

When we are inside the church, whether for a service or a meeting with others, we would appreciate everyone's continue support and commitment to keeping everyone safe. If you are vaccinated, you do not need to wear a mask. However, it is currently recommended that people who are not vaccinated, continue to wear a mask when inside. The Deacons are requesting, if you are not vaccinated, you please follow this guidance when in the sanctuary or attending a meeting. We will have masks and hand sanitizer available at the church entrances for your convenience.

Calling all Bellringers or "Want-to-Be Bellringers"

We own a set of beautifully refurbished English Handbells! We would like to get a group of interested ringers together, pick a date to ring during a worship service and take 2 or 3 rehearsals to prepare the music. There is no long-term commitment needed. We are hoping to rehearse on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday in the late afternoon or early evening.
