Chapel Camp 2017

Now in Our Tenth Year

This summer Emmanuel Church will be worshipping at 10:00 a.m. in the beautiful Lindsey Chapel. After the service, we will gather for some cool drinks and a bite to eat and then engage in a variety of activities that will strengthen our connections to one another, to our traditions, and to our larger community and the world.

A cozy group of Emmanuelites have begun setting aside the last Wednesday evening of each month to see a movie.  Movie selection rotates around the group. The evening concludes with an inexpensive bite to eat. The Kendall Sq. Cinema or any “T” and handicapped accessible theater is a possible destination.

Tours of Emmanuel

Today it is home to thriving communities from Emmanuel Church and Central Reform Temple, Twelve-Step programs, ministries to the homeless, and dozens of music and performing-arts events from Emmanuel Music and other organizations. For a taste of 19th-century Boston and an eyeful of fine architecture in the oldest building on Newbury Street, schedule a free, guided tour.
