The Memorial ChurchThe Memorial Church of Harvard University, part of a vibrant interfaith network of Harvard, is an interdenominational Protestant church in the midst of Harvard Yard that serves as a place of spiritual refuge to the entire community. “MemChurch” stands opposite Widener Library as a visible reminder of the historical and spiritual heritage that has sustained Harvard for nearly four centuries.

We have a saying at the Memorial Church. “Everyone may not belong to MemChurch, but MemChurch belongs to everyone!” In addition to our regularly scheduled services, we also offer a variety of programming for students, adults, and children. Here you will find a range of opportunities to learn, serve, and grow. We are a community of social critique and human compassion, innovation and tradition, scholarship (Veritas) and service (Caritas). In other words, we are who you are.

So please come by and see us. We belong to you!

One Luv,
