The First Parish Unitarian Church, now the First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church of Medfield, is a historic church on North Street in Medfield, Massachusetts. The white clapboarded church was built in 1789, as the third for a congregation established c. 1652. In 1839 it was rotated on its site ninety degrees. It lost its steeple in the New England Hurricane of 1938.[2] The steeple was replaced in 1988, and the building's many layers of paint were stripped off in 2007.[3]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.[1]
