Sundays

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.

2:00 p.m. Service (No 11 a.m. service): An ensemble of skilled actors from the Poets’ Theatre give voice to the wide range of anti-slavery attitudes in Massachusetts during the decades leading up to the Civil War. Black and white, female and male, well-known and obscure, these important writers and orators, including Lydia Maria Child, Paul Cuffee, Frederick Douglass, and Angelina Grimké Weld, among others, transformed fringe ideas—rejected by many in Boston as dangerous and “fanatical”—into a mainstream movement for emancipation.  • Performers: David Gullette is (Playwright) Professor Emeritus of English at Simmons College and Literary Director of the Poets’ Theatre; Dayenne C. Byron Walters is a dancer/choreographer and vocalist; Vincent Ernest Siders is an actor, director, producer, and educator; and Amanda Gann is an actor and playwright.
For more information about the Poets’ Theatre go to their website.
