The Memorial Church is an interdenominational Protestant church in the midst of Harvard Yard that serves as a place of spiritual refuge to the entire community. We are part of an active interfaith network of the University which includes Harvard Hillel, Harvard Islamic Society, and The Harvard Buddhist Community, among others.
Please note that the church building is currently closed for renovations. Locations for services and events vary.
