For the Love of Music and Community
Restore and Renew the Belleville Meetinghouse
"In a world that cries out for more harmony, we can build community and goodwill through music in this great space."
—Rev. Ross Varney
The Belleville Meetinghouse has been a premier gathering place for worship, music and community for more than 150 years. Christmas Eve candlelight service, weddings and Sunday gatherings are long treasured events. The Belleville Roots Music Concert Series hosts Grammy award winning artists for community concerts to raise money for the historic building. Organ and solo concerts fill the hall with quality music. The Meetinghouse is the home of the Newburyport Choral Society’s beloved annual concerts.
Unfortunately, time has taken its toll on this historic building and the one-of-a-kind William Stevens Organ. The ceiling needs restoration and the organ needs crucial repairs. These projects will cost more than $200,000.
The Belleville Church community does not have the means for such extensive repairs, and is making a broad appeal for financial support to any and all who enjoy making and hearing great music in this unique historic space.
Please help Belleville Meetinghouse continue for years to come as a premier venue for music and performing arts. Your tax deductible gift of any size will help us reach our goal.
