Worship at Arlington Street this Summer

Every Sunday through Labor Day, a different member of the Arlington Street community will be preaching, while Rev. Kim, Mark, and Laura Evonne are away on summer break. Should you
need a minister over the summer, please call the church office at 617-536-7050. The admin staff is always here for you; Jeffrey, and Brad are glad to help! Happy summer, one and all! Click here to see our summer line up.

During summer, life at Arlington Street Church slows down and Inside Arlington Street Church is published in this leaner format. Until Homecoming Sunday Service on September 13th, the best way to stay informed on all of the church's activities is to click on "Calendar." Jeff Bouchard, our facilities manager, keeps it current.

About Sunday's Speaker

Harriotte Hurie Ranvig, ethnomusicologist, health care and disability rights advocate, mother of two, and long time member of ASC, continues to teach voice, German and Hindi privately while managing her co-op house. Even with all the above mentioned commitments, People, music, and writing are central to her life. She maintains that being blind since age twelve has opened more doors than it has closed. Harriotte welcomes any and all questions whether related to the life experience of being blind or any other of her interests.Find out more.

Special Considerations for Special Needs

The Arlington Street public transit station re-opened in June 2009 and now provides handicapped access from the transit station to street level via elevators and/or a ramp. A separate part of the MBTA project created a wheelchair ramp leading from street level on Boylston Street to the church office door.

Handicapped access to the Sanctuary on Arlington Street is provided by a ramp on Arlington Street which leads to an entrance to the Sanctuary.

During worship services, and other special events, FM amplification headsets can be provided upon request. Braille hymnals are also available for Sunday services, as well as a large print version of the hymnal and each week’s order of service. Please ask an usher for assistance.

Arlington Street Church has a wheelchair accessible restroom immediately adjacent to the Sanctuary.
