WHAT TO EXPECT
It is important to us that you feel comfortable in worship and that you know what to expect when you visit Cambridge Presbyterian Church.
The congregation is encouraged to follow the Massachusetts and CDC masking recommendations for vaccinated and unvaccinated people, but masks will no longer be required in the church building. The church will remain well-ventilated.
If a worshiper tests positive for COVID-19, the church must be notified and the Cambridge City Board of Health notified for tracking and tracing purposes. An online worship option is also available.
We worship every Sunday at 10AM. If you would like to sing in the choir, from September to June, you can show up at 9AM and be welcomed to sing with our choir.
We also always have a fantastic coffee hour following worship where everyone in the congregation hangs out to eat, drink coffee, and spend time together.
Parking in Cambridge can be a pit of puzzle if you are not used to it. Many of our members commute from other parts of the Metro Boston Area, so you aren’t alone.
The bad news first: we do not have a parking lot. That being said, on Sundays you may park anywhere for free including any metered-space or side-street marked “resident only".
TAKING THE T
We are only a short walk from Central Square or Harvard on the red line.
We are also on the 69 bus route from Harvard or Lechmere (Fayette St stop).
We offer daycare downstairs every Sunday for families with children. Typically the children go downstairs after we sing together as a congregation but if you would like to have your child cared for before then, simply bring your request to an usher and we will see to it immediately.
Throughout the school year we offer Sunday School downstairs during the worship service following the singing of music together. It is no problem if you decide you would rather keep your children with you.
WHAT WORSHIP IS LIKE
We are a diverse congregation made up of people originating from across the globe. We try to remain sensitive to that as much as possible in our worship service.
We love to sing! Singing is a big part of our service and we often incorporate music that originates from around the world. We also have many talented people in our congregation and get them involved musically.
We make use of the organ, piano, clarinet, euphonium, bass and acoustic guitar, and other instruments depending on the song. In our attentiveness to the diversity within our congregation we sing music that also is stylistically diverse and the result is a rich song of praise!
Our wheelchair accessible entrance is to the left of the stairs (on the ground level). Take the elevator up to our sanctuary, or downstairs to our accessible bathrooms.
Dress comfortably. Many dress along the lines of business casual but no one will flinch if you arrive in a pair of shorts and a T-shirt. Be comfortable! While the sanctuary usually remains relatively cool in the summer, it isn’t air-conditioned. We want you to be comfortable when you visit.
Bathrooms are found downstairs and we have a children’s bathroom located in the nursery play area.
