Christ Church Cambridge is the Episcopal Church in Harvard Square—a community of God’s people; baptized in Christ, varied in gifts, united in mission, seeking to become more inclusive as we minister to children, youth, and adults from all parts of the city and beyond.
Our church home is a place of affirming sanctuary, where many find hospitality and hope, even redemption and peace. Worship here is always about thanksgiving and overflows with themes of God’s grace, God’s call to justice, and our responsibility to one another as God’s children. We experience joy, laughter, and delight in moments of shared liturgical celebration, as we experience the awe of God’s presence among us in moments of ministry that include healing prayers, outreach, and pastoral care with the people around us. We continue to discern our ministry, as our hearts are continually tuned to sing God’s praise.
The church building was designed by the architect Peter Harrison and dedicated in 1761.
Christ Church is known for its engaging liturgy and considerable outreach locally and abroad.
Wherever you are on your journey with God or toward God,
you are welcome here.
At Christ Church, we seek to be a community where parishioners can lead and live into their faith and where newcomers are invited to participate in the multifaceted life of our community. To support these goals, we have developed an organizational structure composed of the four core ministry areas below.
Each area of ministry is led by two parishioners called Stewards. If you’re interested in learning more or becoming involved in a particular area, the corresponding Stewards would be happy to talk with you!
Listening to and caring for our community
Learning and living as a community
Living out our faith beyond our walls
Loving through our financial resources
