The Siasconset Union Chapel was built in 1883 as an ecumenical “House of Worship” and has hosted Protestant and Roman Catholic services for many years since. The Chapel is at the heart of the 'Sconset community. It is the meeting place for prayer, song, message, marriage, contemplation and a place for annual renewal and resumption of friendships.

The ‘Sconset Chapel property consists of the Chapel building, a parsonage, the community green and the memorial gardens with our Columbarium. In 2007, the Massachusetts Historical Commission granted an historic preservation restriction to the Chapel ensuring that it will remain as is for years to come.

Live Streaming from ‘Sconset Chapel

The Chapel is excited to offer a new service this summer. Services and activities in the Chapel will now be streaming live from 7 AM - 7 PM daily right here on our home page. This new offering will allow our Chapel community members to "virtually attend" services even if they cannot get to the chapel. Also, the Sunday 10:30 AM services will be recorded throughout the summer for viewing for those who missed them.

Letter from the Board Chair

Summer 2016

From Catherine Saynor

Winter was kinder to ‘Sconset this year, allowing our planned extension of the Columbarium to be completed before Christmas. I think you will agree that it is beautiful and looks as if it was always there. Our thanks to Ben Champoux and his team for the superb execution of the plan in such a timely way.


Letter from Rev.

Summer 2016

Dear Friends of the Chapel:

I have just spent some early morning hours reclaiming my iris bed from the crab grass. I pull out last season’s dead runners only to find tricky new ones traveling just out of easy sight and stubbornly insistent. It reminds me how easily our life can seem that way. You clear one thing only to find another weaving its way in.

Taize Service

The Chapel offered this simplified service of scripture and song last summer for the first time thanks to Jeff Haines who designed the space and provided the music. The Taize community originated in France and is dedicated to reconciliation among Christians and humanity. Using just a few words and the repetition of songs, the service creates a meditative atmosphere. We are planning on having two Taize services this year as it was clear from the feedback we got last summer it was a delight for all who attended and who requested more.
