Welcome to Old South Church
Join us each Sunday at 10:30am.
We are kicking off our 1756 Campaign - Let Us Rise Up and Build. Please consider a donation to help us repair and restore our roof and ceiling.
Message from our Pastor
Whether you live in Newburyport's South End, or you're visiting from across the country, we welcome you to historic Old South.
For over 250 years Old South has been the spiritual home for many in Newburyport. While we cherish our history, we also look to the future. We are expanding our mission, working to preserve our historic worship space, and seeking to grow in Christ.
I invite you to join us for worship or for one of our many special events held throughout the year. I look forward to seeing you soon at "Old South Church."
-Robert M. John

Our Mission Statement
We are a biblically grounded Presbyterian Church seeking to be true to our rich historical heritage by providing a community of worship for all who wish to embrace a faith-centered life in the Christian tradition. We work to:
provide a welcoming and nurturing environment for families and individuals of all ages;
offer worship, service, and educational opportunities to deepen our understanding of what God is calling us to be; and
minister to the wider community.
In the event of a snowstorm or parking ban, we will always have service. Parking can be found in the backlot near Beck Street.
