Covid-19 Announcement

Dear CCB Community,

In response to concerns around COVID-19, and in an effort to ensure the health and safety of our staff, members, and friends, we are writing to let you know that the Community Church of Boston will close to the public tentatively until further notice.

All services, events, and public programs scheduled in the Lothrop Auditorium have been postponed until further notice. Contact CCB at for more information.

We will continue to share updates via our website, social media, and email as we monitor the situation and we will hold virtual meetings on Sunday mornings live on Zoom via computer, and by phoning in as well as live on our Youtube Channel.

The health and safety of our CCB community is our top priority. We encourage everyone to reference and adhere to guidelines provided by the CDC and Massachusetts Department of Public Health.

We look forward to sharing more information as it becomes available, and we hope to see you at Community Church again very soon.

It’s the hardest thing for a church, whose main reason for being is to bring people together, to say, “Stay Away”. This too shall pass.
