About Us


In 1818, a small group of African Americans began meeting on Sunday mornings for Christian worship in a small house on Beacon Hill. This weekly gathering gave birth to what eventually became the Charles Street African Methodist Episcopal Church. For two hundred years, this activist-congregation has faithfully served as a center for Black religious and civic activities in Boston.
