Outdoor Church

The Outdoor Church is a church among homeless men and women in Cambridge. Its mission is to take the church to those who cannot or will not reach it on their own. The Outdoor Church's ministries include Sunday services followed by a light meal and/or street outreach, Saturday meals, pastoral visiting and memorial services.

Sunday services include

  • 9 a.m. Service of Prayer & Communion at Porter Square
  • 1 p.m. Service of Prayer & Communion at the Cambridge Common
  • 3:45 p.m. Service of Compline at the public plaza on River Street near Central Square. 

The Outdoor Church is supported by the association of Harvard Square churches, including First Church in Cambridge. In 2005, Rev. Jedediah Mannis, one of the ministers to the Outdoor Church, became an Affiliate Staff member at First Church.

The Outdoor Church is the recipient of one of First Church's Feeding Ministries.
