The Memorial Church Sanctuary will be closed this summer for maintenance upgrades, starting Wednesday, July 3 through Saturday, August 31. Due to the planned renovations, worship services will not be held this summer. The sanctuary will reopen and services will resume on Sunday, September 1.


The Memorial Church is a multi-denominational 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.
