The First Parish Church is a historic church building at 50 Church Street in Waltham, Massachusetts that is owned by a Unitarian Universalist congregation with a history dating to c. 1696. The current meeting house was built in 1933 after a fire destroyed the previous building (the congregation's third) on the same site. It is a Classical Revival structure designed by the nationally-known Boston firm of Allen & Collens.[2]

The church building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.[1]
