Our Ministry to Internationals promotes the diverse and cosmopolitan character of our church in order that we might increasingly become a “house of prayer for all nations.”

Welcome to Park Street Church! Our church community has citizens from more than 60 nations. Students, visiting scholars and immigrants have made Park Street their spiritual home, many through our classes for speakers of English as a second language as well as through the PSIF fellowship (see below).
During this unusual time of the coronavirus pandemic, we have adjusted much of what we do, but we are continuing to welcome those from other countries and cultures. During the summer, we held a month-long relationships class on the topic of marriage. Our English language classes will be both in-person and on Zoom this fall, and we are continuing to have activities throughout the year as the situation allows. Come and be a part of our fellowship and ministry!
Park Street International Fellowship (PSIF)
Join us during the academic year (September to May) for small group Bible discussions in English. All international students, scholars and their families are invited. Come learn about Christianity and the Bible in a friendly and open environment, where any question is welcome. Our focus is on discipleship and living out the Word of God. No need to register, and lunch is provided. Sundays, 12:30‐3:00 PM.
Dr. Raymond Kam, Minister to Internationals
Date & Time: Sundays, 12:30 to 3:00 PM
Location: Fellowship Hall
English Instruction (ESL)
We offer six levels of English instruction each Fall, Spring, and Summer. We also offer a ‘Language Partners’ program that pairs native speakers with learners for more individualized attention.
2023 Winter/Spring Term classes will begin on January 24 and end on April 13.
Registration for this semester will be on Thursday, January 19 from 9:30 to 11:30 AM at Park Street Church, 1 Park Street, Boston, MA 02108.
Most of our classes require in-person registration so that we can best determine through an exam (grammar, idioms, and writing sample) which level you will be in. We teach beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. Some classes, such as our Professional Communications Workshop, can be registered for online. *See class listings on our English Language Program page for online registration form.
Please contact Karen Patschke, our ESL Coordinator, with any questions. [email protected]
