Situated at the crossroads of State, Main, and South Streets in downtown Northampton, Edwards Church serves as a home for all who seek the Holy Spirit in the midst of a too busy, often glorious, and sometimes challenging world. The wall of windows between our sanctuary and the street – a thin, transparent veil – reminds us of our connection to the world, even as we take a moment’s refuge in the light of the cross.
In addition to serving as a place of worship that features prayer, music, and the Word, Edwards Church hosts many other functions that combine spiritual striving and worldly service such as a soup kitchen, a fellowship hall, a mindfulness center, a Buddhist sangha, and a parents’ center.
Led by a senior pastor, a minister of faith formation, and a minister of music, we nurture our faith, support one another, and find the strength to help make peace in the world. We are an open and affirming congregation. You are welcome to join us anytime.
