THE BASICS

    • We will continue to hold all three weekly services throughout the summer: Sunday 9am First Worship, Sunday 11am Festival Worship, and Thursday 6pm Twilight Worship. The one exception is Membership Sunday - June 23, when we will hold a single 10am service.
    • Vespers Healing Worship will be held on the second Sundays at 5pm over Zoom - email info@oldsouth.org for the link.
  • Space: 
    • In July and August, all in-person worship services will be held in the air-conditioned Chapel to escape the heat. Watching the worship live stream is also always an option at youtube.com/OldSouthChurch
  • Music: 
    • Beginning on May 26 and continuing through Labor Day, Festival Choir will suspend Thursday rehearsals, inviting all who wish to join us Sunday mornings at 10am to rehearse music for that day's 11am Festival Worship.

August 25: Middle Passage Sunday

  • Gathered in 1669, Old South Church in Boston continues to research, name and account for a history which includes radical abolitionists and the first anti-slavery tract on this soil (1700) AND many early ministers and members who were enslavers, who benefited from the forced enslavement and unpaid work of countless persons of African descent. We will honor the lives of our African members from the 1600s, 1700s, & early 1800s on Middle Passage Sunday.
