PUUC as a Community Center

The PUUC is host to numerous activities on a recurring basis, some church related or sponsored, some independent. For a complete schedule see our Calendar.

Non-Church Activities

Christmas shopping at the Local Living Craft FairMeetings of Twelve Step groups are held here weekly. Yoga classes are conducted by several different instructors in the Parish Hall. NHDI (NH Dance Institute), a regional non-profit organization that engages middle school students in a year-long dance program, has its rehearsals here for the local ConVal students.

Grand Monadnock Youth Choir, led by our Music Director Maria Belva; the Peterborough Chamber Choir, led by David Vernier; and Two Rivers Community Choir, led by our accompanist Marybeth Hallinan, all hold their rehearsals, and often performances, in our building.

Farm to Table, local Slow Food events, Living Local, and other occasional craft events fill out the year.

Church and Church-Sponsored Events

The Social Justice Committee often has film screenings and discussion on topics of critical interest, in collaboration with local advocacy groups.

Slides and Sides, presentations by church members of their travels, provides an occasional genial evening's entertainment.

Events sponsored by our Music Committee include Open Stage on the First Friday of each month, Kirtan on the third Friday, and Music Soiree on the fourth Friday. The Music Committee also sponsors yearly concerts by groups such as Amherst College’s Zumbyes, and other artists.

Buddhist Meditation is held the second and fourth Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm.
