WELCOME TO OUR COLLEGE COMMUNITY

The Park Street Church College Community seeks to provide a church home for undergraduate students from around Boston— a welcoming space where students experience the heart of God and engage with the mission of God through their encounter with the people of God.

Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, we invite you to join us here at Park Street Church and in a ministry on your campus. Park Street partners with Cru Boston to reach the city’s 250,000 college students on 50 campuses. We desire to give each student on every campus the chance to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the most relevant way possible. By developing spiritual movements on campus, we hope that every student and faculty member will know someone who truly loves and follows Jesus.

Contact Tammy McLeod to set up an appointment with a campus minister or a Park Street Church minister.

OUR MAIN ACTIVITIES

Sunday Fellowship

Gathering

The Gathering is held each Sunday during the academic year at 9:45 AM (between the two-morning worship services) and 5:30pm. College students lead worship, sing together to praise our great God, share testimonies, and then connect over pastries and coffee. Some weeks there are very short talks, but there are always small group discussions.

The Gathering is open to all college students, and those in the congregation of all ages who would like to connect with young adults. Join us as we seek to build a home for college students within the walls of Park Street Church, and create a point of connection to the rest of the community.

WEEKLY EVENTS

Small Groups

Small groups meet weekly on or near your campus so that you may attend them easily. These groups will help you better understand and apply God’s word. You will also deepen relationships with others as you share your lives with one another and offer encouragement and support to one another.

As you do this, you will find that these are truly transformational communities. Not only will they transform your life and the lives of others in your small group, but they will transform the lives of people around you as you learn to share your faith and invite and welcome others into your community.

Some campuses have large group meetings weekly. Find a list of Cru groups on campus.

If your campus doesn’t have a Cru ministry, we encourage you to email Tammy to help start one!

Some students at Park Street Church are involved in other great campus ministries, which includes Christian UnionInterVarsityand Navigators. Park Street Church encourages student involvement in any of the on-campus fellowships.
