Sunday Services

Sunday Services

Sunday Worship Services begin at 11:00 a.m. during the Fall & Spring Terms and are broadcast live 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. For those outside the Cambridge area, WHRB provides live Internet streaming from its website

Please note that Sunday Worship Services are not broadcast live during the Summer Term. Recordings of the service are typically available early the following week on our Sunday Services Archive page.
