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.

Outreach Report

I would like to tell you about seeing our outreach dollars at work on Nantucket. Recently a group of volunteers from the Chapel provided a cookout for The Tulgey Wood. For those of you that aren't familiar with Tulgey Wood this is from their Mission Statement.

The Tulgey Wood encourages and supports friendships, adventures and artistic expressions between people with severe disabilities and the friends who adore them.

Summer 2017

From Ray Grubbs

As a new season approaches, the countdown for another ‘Sconset summer begins. The calendar for the Chapel displays not only a vibrant schedule of worship services, baptisms, weddings and memorial services; but, also an array of lectures and speakers on topics of interest to many of our congregants.

Summer 2017

Dear Friends of the Chapel:

Another season has come to us at the Chapel. Winter has passed and the promise of summer is here. We gather again in this sacred space we simply call “the Chapel.” In so many ways we come home here, on the Island, in the Chapel. We come to shift gears, to slow a little perhaps, or to engage in activities of pleasure but also meaning. We make meaning by what we open ourselves to learn, to hear, to hope.
