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.

Letter from the Board Chair

Fall 2016

From Ray Grubbs

As we close the 133rd season of our Chapel we are again thankful for the tremendous support and faithfulness of our summer congregants. As always the Chapel community has remained steadfast in its mission and its Outreach into the village and the wider island. The Chapel has benefited throughout its long history from strong ministerial leadership and a vast number of dedicated and committed volunteers who impact every facet of our corporate life.


Letter from Rev.
J. Carr Holland III


Fall 2016

Dear Friends of the Chapel:

As we go into the quiet months of Chapel life and the Chapel rests, there will be some planning here and thus some actions that will see us into the coming season. Many of us will lodge and tend to our spiritual lives in another community of faith. Thus, what may seem dormant here remains very much alive, at work, and growing during life in the in-between.

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.
