Sundays & More

 Sunday Services
From September through June, we have Sunday services for individuals seeking to grow their involvement in a welcoming and family-friendly community fully rooted in justice work. Our 11:00 am Speakers Forum is a time to hear from inspiring and thought-provoking speakers around social justice topics. Music adds a wonderful dimension to the service, and the musicians vary from week to week. We leave time for dialogue with our speaker before gathering at 12:45 pm for lunch.

Membership Sunday
On the first Sunday of each month, we celebrate individuals who wish to become members of Community Church of Boston. We take time during the 11:00 am service when individuals can, as they desire, come forward and sign our Membership Book – a brief yet purposeful ritual symbolizing a commitment not only from the individual to the congregation, but also from the congregation to the individual.

A CCB 100th Anniversary Virtual Event:
Fulani Haynes Jazz Collaborative Concert

Michael Shea, Keyboards, Piano; Alvin Terry, percussion; Cornell Coley, percussion; Cyril Chapman, saxophone; and Dave Zox, Bass

11:00 a.m. Concert & Special rebroadcast at 7:00 p.m.

The musical talent and jazz acumen of vocalist and music director Fulani Haynes has electrified audiences in clubs, cabarets, theaters, and other performance venues in the Boston area for more than four decades. Her depth of musical and theatrical experience has given Fulani a rich foundation to draw upon in performances and collaborations with noted recording artists like Frank Wilkins, Patricia Adams, Hakim Law, and Mike Shea, and in performances for regular folks and nonprofit organizations in her own community.

Fulani’s creative drive inspired her own production company, And the Beat Goes On. She performs solo and with Sisters In Harmony, a three woman historical jazz group who sing and transform themselves into the personas of female jazz artists of the 20’s, 30’s, and 40’s. Fulani also sings regionally with Four, a trio of well-known jazz musicians.

Fulani teaches the heritage of jazz in performances in Boston and around the country, where she sometimes leads the audience in impromptu scat sessions. A lifelong resident of Boston, Fulani developed a program for children called “Jazz-A-Ma-Toot-Toot for the Boston Public Schools and various community organizations. This program teaches young people about the rich musical contributions that African American women have made world-wide, and the dues they paid as they paved the way for entertainers today.

In addition to her frequent Sunday participation at The Community Church of Boston, Fulani has also enjoyed a stellar acting career through her work in Black Nativity, Roxbury Outreach Shakespeare Experience, Black Folks Theater, Middle Passage, The Strand and Erlick Theaters, The Wheelock Family Theater, several one-woman shows, and in television commercials.
