Sanctuary Open for Prayer

UPDATE 7/29/20: The Sanctuary will be open BY APPOINTMENT ONLY (Monday through Friday 8:00am to 3:30pm) going forward. Please contact the Church Office at or 617-277-6860.


Do you miss praying and sitting in our sanctuary? We are trying out some prayer sessions, with appropriate physical distance and hygiene precautions.

We warmly welcome you back to the Sanctuary for prayer for individuals or families. We are offering time slots for unfacilitated time in the Sanctuary for up to 30 mins. We are limiting attendance to 5 families/individuals per time slot. Seating will be assigned to maintain 6 feet of social distance. Seating assignments will be allocated in such a manner as no pew will be reused on a given day. Cleaning will take place afterwards, the next day, or before the next open period.

All participants must wear a mask/face covering. Hand sanitizer will be provided. We ask that you enter through the rear Sanctuary door, under the steeple, where a volunteer or staff member will check you in. You may be asked to take your temperature to ensure you don't have a fever. Following the arrows on the floor, you will find your assigned pew. Please exit following the arrows on the floor out the 210 Harvard Street (parking lot) door. During your time in the church, restrooms will not be available except for emergencies in which case the handicapped accessible restroom in the Marion Street lobby can be used.

Please sign up here.

(If you’d like to sign up for the Tuesday morning time slot, please do so by Monday at 12pm.) You will be contacted by church staff to confirm your appointment. We are testing this out as an experiment. We appreciate your patience and feedback.

Please contact David Dunphy at, Kent at, or Jenna Bergquist at
