Current Sunday Information

The Dover Church
Weekly Worship Services
Sunday, May 2, we turn from Jesus’ post-resurrection appearances, to stories of the very early Church - before it was even called or thought of as the “church.” Accompanied by 1 John’s teaching on the importance of love, we’ll turn to Acts 8:26-40 and follow deacon Philip onto a wilderness road, where he shows us what that kind of love looks like in action. We’ll read this story of Philip and the Ethiopian eunuch he encounters, and wonder together what it has to say to us today, on our own wilderness roads, about who and how we love. We hope you can join us either for our livestream service at 10:00 AM or for our in-person outdoor service at 11 AM. See "How to join us during COVID-19" above for how to join in.

New To The Dover Church?

Welcome to The Dover Church…and we really mean it. YOU are Well – Come. Whoever you are, whatever your life is like, wherever you come from, whenever you feel the urge, we really want you to feel welcome here. That’s what we are all about.  We have members from Dover and many surrounding towns such as: Dedham, Medfield, Natick, Needham, Sherborn, Wellesley, and Westwood to name a few.

Watch our latest sermons

At the center of worship is the sermon, a 10-15 minute reflection by our pastor on where God’s love and longing for us intersects with our lives, community, time, celebrations and sorrows.
