Through its Guatemala Partnership, the Congregational Church of Needham has been engaged in a novel and far-reaching relationship with the rural community of Santa María Tzejá in Guatemala. Please visit us at

Since the mid-1980′s, the congregation has actively supported the village by:

–  witnessing for social justice in the village, Guatemala and around the world.

– offering financial support for community-wide education and development programs.

– encouraging one on one relationships between members of the village and members of the Needham and greater Boston communities.
