You are here


To be a member of Old South Church is to enter the company of revolutionary-era heroes, abolitionists, suffragettes, anti-poverty crusaders, and poets. Our saints include Benjamin Franklin, Samuel Adams, Phillis Wheatley ... and perhaps you.

Inspired by the witness of our forebears, we would rise to the occasions of our own day. In times of unrest, Old South Church offers sanctuary. When there are rumors of war, we plead for peace. Where there is need, we work to meet it. Where there is distrust, we seek understanding.

Will you join hands with us in this high and holy work?

Members (as distinguished from guests or periodic attenders) make promises to God and to each other: to support and serve one another, to love and live for God, to work for the welfare of church and city. Members are those who have committed, those who can be counted on, to continue Old South’s mission of justice-making in Jesus’ name.

To help us reflect on these promises to be made and to explore the common life of the congregation, we invite you to attend one of our Connections Classes.

Connections Classes offer the opportunity to meet others new to the Old South family, and learn what makes this vibrant, diverse, progressive Christian community tick! We'll talk about what it might mean for you to jump in and join us on the pilgrimage of faith. 

A light meal is served at each class and childcare is made available with advance notice.
