Sparrow's Nest Theater [located at 1114 West Mills Rd., Industry, ME], aims to support and foster a creative arts community. Producing plays, offering arts classes and a monthly music praise worship are some of the activities. Sparrow's Nest is a partnership between Red Clay Creek Presbyterian Church in Wilmington, Delaware and United in Christ Presbyterian Church in Starks. The 2014 theater season is funded, in part, through grants from the Presbytery of Northern New England and Mission at the Eastward.
What is in a name?
Mission at the Eastward believes that the name of our cooperative parish is important for three reasons: first, it is historic, remembering the eighteenth century "Presbytery at the Eastward" located in Boothbay Harbor, Maine. Second, what distinguishes Mission at the Eastward is that it is a mission, it has characteristics that are different from a collection of congregations. Third, mission implies service.

Mission at the Eastward is Growing in God!
This website, like the Mission, is under reconstruction and becoming re-energized. Our churches are participating in transformational programs to find "New Beginnings" and seeking to partner with God in our communities. We are learning more about how to "Engage" with others and spread God's good news.
Please visit MATE church websites, particularly Fairbanks Union Church in Farmington, North Turner Union Presbyterian Church, Leeds Community Church and United in Christ Presbyterian Church in Starks, to see the exciting new and energized missions.
