Memorial Church

We are excited to announce that the Memorial Church will undergo much needed renovations in the coming months. The project will focus on:

  • long-deferred building and infrastructure maintenance, including accessibility and safety compliance upgrades;
  • a reconfigured lower level that enhances and supports the teaching and programmatic mission of the Church and the University;
  • a new climate control system for the upper and lower levels of the Church that will allow for more comfortable, year-round use of the building.

Beginning at the end of May after Commencement, the project is anticipated to extend through the end of the calendar year and the Church building will be closed for the duration of the renovation. The Memorial Church staff has relocated temporarily to the third floor of 44R Brattle Street during construction.
 

Memorial Church services during construction

Summer services will not be held this year. Starting in the Fall Term, Sunday Worship will be held in the Knafel Center (Radcliffe Gym) in Radcliffe Yard and Morning Prayers will be held in Holden Chapel in the yard. More information will be forthcoming about locations for other Memorial Church events and programs.
 

Stay informed

As the project progresses, the team will be providing updates on the Memorial Church WebsiteFacebook page, and Twitter. You can also subscribe to receive construction project updates by email.
