For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

 

Who are Park Street Women?

Teenagers, thirty-somethings and octogenarians; suburbanites and city dwellers; students and professors; working outside and inside our homes; single and married; from anywhere in the world. Where can you find us? Participating in a Bible study, teaching a Christian Formation class, starting a book discussion group, sharing the love of Jesus on the Boston Common, attending an event designed especially for women. In other words, you’ll find us wherever you look, advancing God’s kingdom. Why are we here? We’ve found a welcoming church home and we want to share it. What motivates us? The extravagant, exuberant, unearned love of Christ.
 
Would you like to be a Park Street Woman, too? Our desire is to draw women to dwell in Christ and from that place of security to do the good works prepared for us before time began.

4th Trimester Group

The goal of the 4th Trimester Ministry is to care for and celebrate with new moms in our church community after pregnancy or adoption. An experienced mom visits a new mom within the first few months after giving birth with a gift from the church and information on the programs at the church relevant to her. The volunteer mom also provides a sympathetic ear and helps to connect mom and baby to any resources they may need. 4th Trimester ministry is not limited to first time moms, and we are excited to reach out to moms, particularly those who are new to Park Street, of multiple children. 4th Trimester wishes to provide care support for women in who have experienced loss such as miscarriage or stillbirth.

 

Creating Space

Connect.
Be refreshed and renewed.
Welcome one another into community.
Walk alongside each other on our faith journeys
.

Our Creating Space initiative features informal gatherings, allowing women to make room in their busy lives for community, creativity and friendship.

A list of upcoming Creating Space moments can be found at the bottom of this page. Would you like start your own Creating Space moment? Contact the team with your idea!

Walking Together

Walking Together is what our women’s discernment team has given as a name to our emphasis on the “intergenerationality” of our church. We are one of just a few evangelical churches in Boston who regularly find four generations in her pews. This is a truth we would like to live into more deeply in the days and months ahead. For what good is it to have four generations under one roof if we rarely mingle? At these events, we invite you to reach out a hand to someone with greater or fewer wrinkles than your hand has. Who knows, it could be the start of a life-long friendship! Find a list of Walking Together events at the bottom of this page.

    About Hanneke

    Effervescent and engaging, Boston-based fiddler Hanneke Cassel is a performer, teacher and composer whose career spans over two decades. Her style fuses influences from the Isle of Skye and Cape Breton Island with Americana grooves and musical innovations, creating a cutting-edge acoustic sound that retains the integrity and spirit of the Scottish tradition. Hanneke’s music is a blend of the contemporary and traditional, described by the Boston Globe as “exuberant and rhythmic, somehow wild and innocent, delivered with captivating melodic clarity and an irresistible playfulness.” She has performed across North America, Europe, Australia, and Asia and is the 1997 U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Champion. Learn more and listen to her music!
