Newcomers' Dinner

Our Newcomers' Dinner provides a helpful way to get to know more about our community, our mission, and our vision. We gather at our pastor's home in Jamaica Plain for a casual dinner with the pastor and others from the community. The hope is that you walk away with a better sense of who we are and of what it would look like for you to become a part of this community. There are no strings attached—just come and enjoy the evening! Please RSVP to new@cotcboston.org.

Foundations Group: Session 1

Join us at our pastor's home in Jamaica Plain for our Foundations Group. This is a 12-week group where we will delve into the foundations of the Christian life and understand how those are lived out in our community, as an Anglican church in Boston. This group will also have elements of a Neighborhood group: a place to build relationships, share your story, ask questions, pray, and grow with others.

Our time together will feature teaching and discussion around the gospel (i.e. biblical story), conversion, the Apostles' Creed, the Lord's Prayer, the Ten Commandments, the sacraments, Anglicanism, community, mission, and worship/liturgy. The discussions are grounded in Scripture, and we'll also have some supplemental readings between sessions to strengthen our discussion and reinforce understanding.
