Church Leadership

Welcome to OUR ChurcH

Our Pastor


My name is Rev. Kate Pinkham and I am a daughter, a mother, a grandmother, a sister, an aunt and a friend.

Since October 2012 I have served as the Pastor of Edgecomb Community Church, UCC. Before coming to Maine, I worked as the Curator and Director of a local historical society and as a Library Archivist at a private boarding school. I graduated from Andover Newton Theological School in 2011 where I received a Master of Divinity Degree.

Some of my favorite things to do are visiting with friends and family, walking the trails of the Boothbay Region Land Trust, and baking cookies and making soup. I especially enjoy getting to know people, hearing their stories, and learning how God is working in their lives.

Ministry for me is a privilege and a calling. I am blessed and humbled to build Christian community in the town of Edgecomb, Maine, and I cannot wait to see where God leads us!

One of my favorite scripture passages is:

Come to me, all you that are weary and carrying heavy burden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me: for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. 

Jesus (Matthew 11:28-30)

Rev. Katherine Pinkham retired recently. Her last day was Sunday, May 28, 2023 with THE SERVICE OF RELEASE, FAREWELL, AND BLESSING.

The Search Committee is working on filling her position. Pulpit supply ministers will be helping out until the position is filled.
