Sunday Services

Sunday service in the Memorial Church Sanctuary

Virtual Sunday Services

Sunday Worship Services begin at 11 a.m. during the academic year and are broadcast and streamed via WHRB 95.3 FM, Harvard's student run radio station.

For more than 50 years, the broadcast was live from the sanctuary of the Memorial Church. This Fall Term, services will be prerecorded by clergy, our music department, Harvard students and faculty, and staff because of the global pandemic. The safety of our community remains our first commitment.

The services are traditionally 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. Those standards will continue even during this international emergency. We invite all to worship with us each Sunday.

The latest schedule of our online services and events are listed on the Memorial Church calendar.
