The English settlers of Massachusetts Bay brought with them the conviction that each independent settlement should have its own church—a church Puritan in its principles, observances, and governance.  Settled in 1630, the town of Roxbury had such a church.
Seventy-six years later, in 1706, 45 inhabitants of the western end of Roxbury, a distance of about six miles over very rough and sometimes impassable roads, petitioned the General Court to form another parish.  The request was ignored.

As the community has changed in the past three centuries, so too Theodore Parker Church has continued to grow and evolve.  May we joyfully celebrate our history, honoring the rich legacy left us by our spiritual forebears, while also rededicating ourselves to the mission of providing sound, beautiful buildings and a welcoming home to a diverse array of seekers.
