Welcome to the Old South Church in Boston Media Relations Portal

For 344 years, Old South Church has stood as a vibrant Christian community. From Benjamin Franklin to Samuel Adams, from the first published African American poet to the first anti-slavery tract, from civil rights to LGBT rights, from affordable housing to overcoming racism, we engage in ministries of freedom, mercy, justice and beauty. We are a congregation of the United Church of Christ, welcoming all who seek to journey toward the promised realm of God. Our life together is animated by our belief in the presence of the Living God, whom we come to know through the rhythms of worship, prayer, scripture and learning, generosity, kindness and hospitality.

Old South is a spiritual home to people from all walks and stations of life, believers and questioners, people from a range of backgrounds and faith perspectives. In our worship, we draw on a variety of Christian traditions, from ancient to contemporary. Through a broad and eclectic program of service, outreach, education, and fellowship, we strive to be part of God’s work of mending the world.
