Church profile: Holy Spirit, Charlestown

Church of the Holy Spirit is a warm, vibrant church community with a strong sense of mission. We laugh a lot, try to treat each other well and look forward to time spent together in worship, prayer and study.

Located in the historic district of Charlestown, we serve a community consisting of rural farms and beach cottages. We offer spiritual direction, the Ignatian Spiritual Exercises, a book group, faith-sharing groups, gentle yoga and retreats. We seek to become contemplatives in action. Prayer and mission are priorities here. In 2017, ChurchWoods came about when the diocese, our congregation and the town of Charlestown partnered to offer affordable housing to qualified area residents 55 and older. ChurchWoods offers attractive duplexes adjacent to the church grounds.

We host a summer farmers’ market weekly on our church grounds sponsored by the Charlestown Land Trust, and we hold a monthly pancake breakfast to raise money for homeless families. We support four other local agencies to joyously serve all sorts and conditions of God’s people.
