Sunday Services

Sunday Services

Sunday Worship Services are broadcast live during the Fall and Spring Terms via WHRB 95.3 FM, Harvard's student run radio station. 

WHRB has been broadcasting the Sunday services from The Memorial Church in Harvard Yard during fall and spring terms since the early 1960's. The services are known for engaging sermons given by preachers from Harvard and around the world, and for the high level of music under the direction of Gund Organist and Choirmaster Edward Jones.

Services begin at 11:00 a.m (eastern standard time), with the broadcast starting a few minutes earlier to exhibit some of the organ music that ushers parishioners to their seats. For those outside the Cambridge area, WHRB provides live Internet streaming from its web site
