The United Church of Christ in Abington is located 20 miles south of Boston on route 18, Bedford Street. The town of Abington was established around this old New England parish and the present-day church still plays an active role in the community. As a result of the merger of three Abington churches in 1968, today's church is a unique blend of United Methodist and Congregational traditions and offers a wide range of music experiences.
