St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church celebrated its 105th anniversary in 2013.
We blend traditional liturgical practices with progressive contemporary sermons and Open Table communion.
There is a quiet/spoken service at 8:00 am each Sunday with no choir and no hymn singing. The early service does include Rite II communion and sermon.
During the liturgical seasons of Advent and Lent we offer Bible Study for adults from 9:15 to 10:00 am.
The principal Sunday service at 10:30 am sings a lot, using Episcopal, Anglican and African-American worship music hymns from the Hymnal 1982 and LEVAS (Lift Every Voice and Sing).
In July and August we have one worship service at 10:00 am.
Our key neighborhood ministry is a Wednesday evening dinner for the hungry and those without or in transitory homes. This community meal is a joint effort initiated and led by students from MIT with significant parishioner involvement. We host between 60 and 100 guests for every Wednesday evening dinner.
We are a predominantly Afro-Caribbean congregation moving towards diversity. Many members are in the wisdom generation, and we also serve adults and parents of small children.
Through the presence and guidance of the Holy Spirit, we experience the infinite love of Jesus Christ, the healing power of forgiveness, and the never-failing hope in God's Word.
