Arriving for the First Time
On your first visit, look for the designated New to PSC Guest Table, where one of our team members will provide you with a free gift and answer any questions you may have. If you are checking in children, they will lead you to the children’s check-in process with our dedicated children’s volunteers. You’ll want to arrive about 15–20 minutes early.
Checking in Children
Parents should check their kids in before the worship service at our volunteer-assisted kiosks. You will receive receive your child’s name tag and matching pick-up receipt, which will be required to pick your child up after service. Once your child is registered, simply join the service as a family. Children ages one to seven will be dismissed about 20 minutes into the service to join the children’s activities. Your children are always welcome to stay with you through the service.
Everything You Need to Know
What Do We Believe?
We believe we are all sinners and are in need of a savior. Find out more about our statement of faith here.
What Should I Wear?
Everyone wears what they are comfortable in—you’ll see many people in business casual, jeans and a nice button-up shirt, or their favorite New England sports team. Our morning services are a little more formal while our evening service is a little more laid back.
Where Can I Park?
In a city like Boston, parking can be a challenge, so we have partnered with a couple different parking garages to help lower your cost of coming to church
- One Beacon Street Garage: $11 on weekends and after 4:00 PM on weeknights. Validate your ticket with the Park Street Church stamp located at the front desk located in the Ockenga Lobby.
- Boston Common Garage: $10 on weekends and after 4:00 PM with parking coupon. Parking coupons may be purchased (cash only) at the front desk located in the Ockenga Lobby. Make sure to bring the blue parking ticket you receive as you enter the garage with you as you leave the garage. Before you go back to your car, put the blue ticket in the ticket machine then when asked for payment, insert the white parking ticket purchased at the church.
Parking in metered spaces is FREE on Sundays. (Please note: the Boston Common side of Park Street is a no-parking zone; you could be ticketed for parking there.)
Who attends Park Street Church?
Young, old, married, single, students, business professionals, people who live in Beacon Hill and people who have no permanent residence, people from around the globe.
