Our Worship Services are weekly reflections that weave together our own thoughts and experiences with music, beauty, poetry, and words that both comfort and challenge. Our programs for all ages inspire us, and awaken us to our capacities to make a difference in our own lives and in the world.
We are inspired not just by religious sources but by the people with whom we journey: the diverse and spirited Unitarian Universalists.

Waypoint mission: Empowering people of all ages through an array of human services and advocacy
Our name signifies a point along a journey at which you change course. That’s what we do. We help people and communities to change course. In 2018, we rebranded and changed our name from Child and Family Services to Waypoint to better reflect who we are and who we serve today--lifeline across the lifespan.
As a private, nonprofit agency, our array of services includes-- adoption, prenatal support, parent education/family empowerment, services for children with developmental concerns or chronic health conditions, child care, mental health counseling, family preservation, supervised visitation, foster care, homeless youth continuum, home healthcare for older Americans and adults with disabilities, and advocacy
While our name is relatively new, our roots run deep, all the way back to 1850 (see our HISTORY page). That makes us the oldest human service/children’s charitable organization in New Hampshire. We were born in New Hampshire, are still run by people in New Hampshire, and are dedicated to the people of New Hampshire, and now eastern Vermont!
You Are Welcome Here
We are open to all, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, ethnic origin, or religious beliefs. We expect only that you respect the principles that we as a congregation choose to affirm together, such as the inherent worth and dignity of every person; a commitment to justice, equity, and compassion in human relations; and a firm devotion to every individual’s right and obligation to engage in a free and responsible search for truth.
