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

The outreach program at the Chapel continues to thrive thanks to the ongoing support and generosity of the Chapel community.

It is with sincere gratitude to all that we are able to support many local organizations. These include: The Community Foundation of Nantucket, Habitat for Humanity, A Safe Place [for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault], Gosnold [providing treatment for people suffering with addiction and mental health issues ] Fairwinds [family and children’s services ], Nantucket Food Pantry and Housing Assistance, Nantucket Boys and Girls Club, Laundry Love, Music Programs for the Elderly and Sconset local emergencies.

From Ray Grubbs

As we approach our 136th year at the Chapel, the countdown begins for another Sconset summer. Our thoughts go to our special village with all of our family traditions which we hold dear.


Letter from Rev.

Spring 2019

Dear Friends of the Chapel:

Welcome to another season at the ‘Sconset Union Chapel. The Chapel offers religious, spiritual and ethical grounding to any who come here. Some embrace time on Nantucket as a slowdown, a time to shift into a lower, more reflective gear. For others their time here becomes quite busy with relationships and favorite activities. I suspect for many of us, there is an effort to seek balance between those two ends.
