PLAN YOUR VISIT
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What Should I Expect When I Arrive?
When you visit, expect to meet a couple of greeters at the big red doors who are there to welcome and assist you. Like many New England churches, our sanctuary is upstairs, so when you arrive come up the winding staircase into the sanctuary lobby where you will meet volunteers serving coffee, tea, and water as well as a Christ Kids Welcome Station should you be bringing children with you to worship. When you are ready to do so, come into the sanctuary and find a seat. Restrooms are located to the right of the sanctuary through the door beside the stage.
Is There Parking?
We have a small parking lot beside our church building that is available on Sundays, and street parking is free throughout Charlestown on Sundays as well. If these are both filled, the parking lot at Whole Foods at 27 Austin Street is available on Sundays during worship as well.
What Are The Closest T Stops?
The Community College Orange Line T-stop is a convenient walk of less than 10 minutes from the church.
What About My Kids?
We offer Christ Kids on Sundays for children up through fifth grade, seeking to provide a clean, safe, and welcoming environment where everyone can hear the good news of the Gospel at an age-appropriate level. As families arrive, kids are checked in at the Christ Kids Welcome Station before worship begins. The nursery is available from the start of service at 10:15, while kids 3 and older will be dismissed to class after the music portion of the worship service. We have three kids classes to separate infants and toddlers; preschool and kindergarten; and elementary age children. Each class has two nationally background-checked volunteers present. As the worship service concludes, parents and guardians pick up their children at the Welcome Station.
How Long Is A Service / What Should I Expect?
A worship service at Christ Church typically lasts about an hour and fifteen minutes. During that time, our worship team leads the church in a mixture of hymns, gospel songs, and modern worship songs; we pray together; we hear a message from the Bible with applications for today; and we have a time of reflection and response.
What Should I Wear?
You are welcome to wear whatever clothing you would like. While we feel no pressure to dress up to come to worship, you are more than welcome to if you would like. Most people dress in casual attire.
