The Ballou Channing District covers southeast Massachusetts (excluding the greater Boston area), Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket Island, and Rhode Island. There are forty-six congregations, forty-four Unitarian Universalist and two Federated.

On July 1, 2010, Clara Barton and Massachusetts Bay Districts began a staff sharing arrangement that is being tried over a two-year interim period. Given geographic proximity of the two districts and a collective desire to share program capacity, we are hopeful that this arrangement will allow us to serve our congregations better. Under this arrangement, each district provides both general and targeted abilities to meet congregational needs.  On July 1, 2014, Ballou Channing entered into partnership with the two districts, and Northern New England District plans to join in 2015.
