Mission and Membership

Martha’s Vineyard Neighborhood Convention is an interfaith gathering of laity and clergy committed to fellowship and service on Martha’s Vineyard. It is the oldest interdenominational group on the Island, founded November 13, 1894, as a “neighborly meeting” to promote better relationships among all the congregations. The Neighborhood Convention is open to lay people and clergy from all congregations on Martha’s Vineyard. Denominations represented include United Methodist, United Church of Christ, Baptist, Federated, Christian Science, Episcopal, Roman Catholic, and Jewish congregations. The Convention supports about twenty Island charities.
