Sanctuary

The church building was completed in 1821 as the town meeting house, and retains most of its charming original architectural features, including a rare second-floor pulpit. The church is blessed with a modern custom Trillium organ. Note that the music director must approve any outside organist hired for an event.

 

The sanctuary has original boxed pews with doors. Rather than a single aisle down the center, there are two aisles with pews on each side and in the center, as can be seen  below. There is a small raised "stage" area at the front of the church with furniture that can be moved out to accommodate concerts. The church holds 200 people in the downstairs* main sanctuary.

 

The sanctuary is suitable for weddings, funerals and memorials, christenings, concerts, and similar events. No alcohol, nor food or beverage other than water may be consumed in the Sanctuary. To hold an event in the sanctuary, contact the church at 763-3838 (there is an answering machine), or our minister, Rev. Elizabeth Barnum at 207-230-4037.

 

*We do not encourage seating in the upstairs balconies, because visibility is limited from there.
