Join us this Sunday for our

Worship Service

at 10:00 a.m. as we welcome our new

"Bridge Pastor" Rev. Judy Brain.


"When the Wine Runs Out"

Scripture Reading

John 2:1-11

All of our worship services will be held in the Cove Room during our second phrase of the renovations to our Sanctuary.

Please use the Leonard Street entrance until further notice.


With the retirement of our beloved Rev. Deirdre White on January 13th, 2019,

we are entering a time of transition until the calling of the next settled pastor.

For the first phase of this process, the Board has approved a covenant between the Annisquam Village Church

and the Rev. Judy Brain, who will serve as our Bridge Pastor for the next four months.

We will introduce Rev. Judy to our congregation at her first Sunday service on January 20.


Rev. Judy comes to us with extensive experience in serving churches in transition.

She received her theological education at Harvard Divinity School, and she is ordained in the United Church of Christ.

She has served churches in Metropolitan Boston Association and on the North Shore.

After her retirement from Pilgrim Congregational Church in Lexington in 2009,

Rev. Judy began working as a bridge pastor, serving churches in transition.

As bridge pastor at the Annisquam Village Church,

Rev. Judy will provide pastoral leadership on a part time basis while the Pastor Search Committee continues its work.

Please welcome Rev. Judy on Sunday, January 20th!
