Common Life at Village Church

Opportunities to CONNECT, SERVE & ACT 

Village Table ~ A meal program hosted by Wellesley Village Church
We are a vibrant, multi-generational team of volunteers who welcome the greater community into the church kitchen every two weeks to make and distribute over 600 meals per month for those who are food insecure. Our mission is to create healthy, quality meals for those in need, support our not-for-profit partners, and foster fellowship and community. EMAIL:

Birthday Sunday
First Sunday of each month
In the welcome given at the start of worship, we hear words that celebrate the presence of all who gather. We hear words that affirm how each of us matters. We matter to the church, and we matter to God. That is worth celebrating and we will do so with song and cake immediately following 10am Worship at the start of fellowship hour the first Sunday of each month. Please email Rev. Stacy at: the week before and/or write your name on the poster in Village Common Sunday morning so that we can celebrate the gift that you are! 

Empty Nesters + Walking Group
We are a group of singles and couples (not just empty nesters), who gather weekly, weather permitting, for a walk in various locations, currently at the beautiful Elm Bank Reservation in Wellesley. Won’t you join us? Email at to receive a weekly email for location details and confirmation or cancellation, pending weather.

Seniors Connect
First Tuesday of the month
Seniors connect via Zoom. This is a time of connection and conversation.  All are welcome. Our wondering question “What’s growing in you?”  Please email Rev. Stacy Swain at:

Ways to Give

Would you like to enhance your online worship experience with a
copy of our New Century Hymnal for home use?

“Blest be the tie that binds our hearts in Christian love;
The fellowship of kindred minds is like to that above”
~Pilgrim Hymnal

Music is one way we connect as a Christian community through time and space. Whether you worship with us online regularly or occasionally, we understand the importance of having the hymnal to hold in your hands just like those in our sanctuary. This can serve as a physical reminder that, while singing, we are one together.

If you’d like to receive a copy of this hymnal for home use, please let Christine Toppin know so that she can make arrangements to get a copy to you. Email Christine at:
