The First Universalist Church is a historic church at 250 Washington Street in Providence, Rhode Island.
The brick Gothic church was designed by Edwin L. Howland, a prominent local architect, and built in 1871-72. It is the third sanctuary for a congregation that was founded in 1821 through the efforts of Reverend John Murray, "the founder of American Universalism". It is one of the few remaining church buildings in central Providence, an area that once housed a large number of churches.
