Arlington Street Church
Located across from the Boston Public Garden, Arlington Street Church is a popular place for weddings. With a sanctuary that was renovated in 2001, high vaulted ceilings, and perhaps the largest collection of Tiffany stained-glass windows in a church, it's easy to see why.
The church was built in 1861, and was the first public building in Back Bay. The congregation, established in 1789, is liberal and welcoming of all people and lifestyles.
Run by the Rev. Kim Crawford Harvie, worships take place every Sunday at 11am. Podcasts of sermons are available online. Braille and large print hymnals and FM amplification headsets are available upon request. From September through June, childcare and religious education programs for children take place during the service.
