The First Religious Society Church and Parish Hall is a historic church building at 26 Pleasant Street in Newburyport, Massachusetts. Originally a Reformed congregation, the congregation is currently affiliated with the Unitarian Universalist denomination. The current Minister is Reverend Harold Babcock. The church's steeple is currently the tallest point in downtown Newburyport, Massachusetts.

The church building was constructed in 1801 by the First Religious Society, which was founded in 1726. It has been suggested that noted Salem builder Samuel McIntire designed the building.

The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1976, and included in the Newburyport Historic District in 1984.
