Black Student Ministries is a newly created student organization under the umbrella of the Memorial Church of Harvard University. This organization provides a multi-denominational worship experience drawing deeply from the richness and diversity of Black Church traditions. Our Spirit-led worship services and passionate faith community seeks to provide a space of grace, acceptance, restoration, and inspiration for all Black students at Harvard. Our space is one that unequivocally and unashamedly affirms that all Black Lives Matter.
The ancient service of Compline is held on the first Thursday of each month during the academic Term. Based upon the traditional evening liturgy of scripture, music, prayers, and silence, this twenty-minute service is sung in the candlelit space of Appleton Chapel by members of the Harvard University Choir. All are welcome.
