Welcome to the Old North Church.
We are both a national historic landmark operated by the Old North Foundation and an active Episcopal Church congregation. Established in 1723 as Christ Church in the City of Boston, Old North is the oldest church building and the longest serving Episcopal congregation in the City.
As of July 28th, 2020, Old North has suspended all on-site tours and programming until further notice. We've made the difficult decision to cancel our remaining 2020 pop up dates due to alarming COVID rates.
The congregation of the Old North Church invites you to worship with us on Christmas Eve. Our Festival of Lessons and Carols will be shared at 5:00 p.m. on Christmas Eve and can be viewed anytime following, throughout this holy season. Episcopal Church services continue to be offered online. Click here for information on connecting.
Old North Church & Historic Site is closed to visitors through the spring of 2021. Operating Hours Update: We've made the difficult decision to cancel our remaining pop up dates due to alarming COVID rates. Our gift shop will open if it is safe to do so.. You can also shop online and save $6.95 on shipping with the code SHIP695.
Private tours for small groups and families are available, with pricing beginning at $500. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
Our website is currently under construction. Please excuse the broken links as our limited staff is working to resolve the issues.
For nearly 250 years, Old North has stood as a beacon of bravery, determination, and hope in the face of challenging times. As a result of our four month closure, we face a critical funding shortfall that challenges our ability to continue the programming, visitor experience, and preservation that this national historic site deserves. Please consider making a gift to Old North today to help sustain this valuable and active monument to the resiliency, initiative, and tenacity of the American spirit. When this crisis ends, and we are able to gather together once again, Old North Church will stand to remind us of our resolve to overcome adversity.
