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.
Throughout 2018, the church will be hosting events ranging from exciting concerts, discussion forums, a reunion, to picnics and a year-end gala! We’ll add new events to the list below as they are finalized.



A Church Still in Song!
