A Word About These Recordings

These recordings are all recorded live during our services using two small, unobtrusive microphones hanging from the ceiling. We think these recordings are pretty good but for the full experience please visit us in person! We were established in 1826 in Nashua, New Hampshire. Our Internet home is uunashua.org.

Our minister is Rev. Allison Palm and our director of faith formation is Sadie Kahn-Green. Our pianist, organist, choir director, and music director are all Jared (Jed) Holland.

One part of many services is called Joys and Concerns. It is too personal to be posted, but here is a sample of the words and music that are said and sung, with the personal information removed: Joys and Concerns.

Services are shown below, most recent first. Using the 'select group' dropdown, you can view previous years one year at a time. For each service, the elements are listed generally as they appear in the printed Order of Service. Click the blue play button following an item to hear it.

We are now also doing live streaming of our services on Sundays at 10 am, then repeating them again at 3 pm and 7 pm that day. To listen to those on internet radio, go to our main website, at uunashua.org, look at "Sunday Service Live" at the top of the right column, then select "Click Here to Play" to start hearing the service.You may have to click the "start" button on your player 2 or 3 times depending on your exact hardware and software.

Recordings from the April 8, 2018 service         
Date recorded: April 8, 2018
Today's wonderful service is led by Rev Allison Palm, with Faith Formation director Sadie Kahn-Greene and Music Director Jed Holland. There are many beautiful parts, from the powerful anthems to the moving reflections. When listening to the Ritual of Lamentation and Intention, imagine everyone going to four stations: one to lament and speak your sorrow, one to petition the universe for help, one to write your hopes and fears, and one to say aloud something you will do to move our faith forward.
