Lent is a period of about six weeks running up to Easter. It begins in February or March on Ash Wednesday-40 days (excluding Sundays) before Easter Sunday. The exact dates vary because the date for Easter changes every year. Many Christians go to church on Ash Wednesday to seek forgiveness from God for what they have done wrong. Lent is a time of solemnity and self-reflection for Christians and many will fast from certain foods or activities. The day before Lent is trditionally marked by feasting and the UK it is known as Shrove Tuesday or Pancake Day. In other parts of the world, it is called Mardi Gras

Settled Pastor Update 

Our search for a settled pastor

We at West Church have embarked on an exciting journey to find a settled pastor.  Reverend Doctor Rhonda Macleod led us through the first part of the journey called an “Interim process”. During the first leg of the interim process, we identified the vision for the church going forward, and reviewed and updated our by-laws which identify the basic beliefs upon which our church is based and how we function as an organization. This information was then summarized in a document called a “Profile” which will be sent to Pastors who are interested in applying for the position of “settled pastor” by the UCC. Now that this work has been completed and we are entering the final leg of this process as our Search Team works to find the right person to be our settled pastor, we are now saying farewell and best wishes to Rev. Dr. Rhonda Macleod as she has completed her commitment as interim minister. 


While the Search Committee does their work, the UCC has assisted us in finding “Bridge Pastors" for the coming weeks. Please refer to our Facebook page West Congregational Church for weekly updates. ( West Congregational Church, UCC - Concord, NH | Facebook
