Upcoming Service

At 10:00 am on Sundays, we will have a video here on the homepage of our website and it will be available anytime after that. The video will also be available on the Eliot Chapel Facebook page which will allow you to comment and interact. We welcome your participation!


After weighing carefully the different factors of dealing with COVID-19, Eliot Chapel has decided to close all facilities through the summer. We will continue to do all the gatherings we do now electronically, including worship. See Rev. Barbara's announcement video


For more information on Eliot's plans for the coming months, please read this message from our lead minister, the Rev. Barbara H. Gadon. Thank you!
