About Old South Church

The Old South Church in Boston is an open and affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ. Gathered in 1669, Old South Church is often referred to as the church of the Boston Tea Party! Today we are a diverse, progressive Christian community in the heart of the city of Boston. Old South opens its doors to the city, to tourists from near and far, to the needy, to an array of building users, and to a congregation (of members, friends and family -- both the curious and the committed) who call this their church home.
