The First Unitarian Church is a historic church building at 130 Highland Avenue in Somerville, Massachusetts. The stone church was built between 1875 and 1899 for a Unitarian Church congregation. It was designed by Hartwell, Richardson and Driver, and is a good example of Richardsonian Romanesque design.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.[1] As of 2009 the building houses the Mission Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
