Old South Church in Boston, Massachusetts, (also known as New Old South Church or Third Church) is a historic United Church of Christ congregation first organized in 1669. Its present building was designed in the Gothic Revival style by Charles Amos Cummings and Willard T. Sears, completed in 1873, and amplified by the architects Allen & Collens between 1935–1937. The church, which was built on newly filled land in the Back Bay section of Boston, is located at 645 Boylston Street on Copley Square. It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1970 for its architectural significance as one of the finest High Victorian Gothic churches in New England. It is home to one of the older religious communities in the United States.

  • Beautiful church. We didn't have to pay a fee to view it. They had some information we could read about its history upon entering. I think if you are in the area it is well worth a visit!

  • Right near Copley Square, the Old South Church is a gem. The interior is Victorian majestic It is an example of the transformation of Plain, New England style to Victorian grandeur

  • In town for the Boston Marathon on Easter and attended this beautiful historic church. The Blessing of the Runners was quite emotional and brought tears to my eyes. A lovely service.
  • Old South Church is an amazing and refreshing place to worship. People are warm and inviting. The music is amazing. The services are for all people. And the preaching is so good. It's your next church family you never knew you needed.
