Agape Spiritual Community, a gathering of contemplative activists serving the heart of Waltham, has chosen to suspend in-person gatherings of all kinds throughout the end of 2020. In line with our belief in a radical hospitality that welcomes all, we have chosen not to return to physical in-person worship or gathering together until we can develop a careful and thorough plan that will protect everyone. We will send another update about moving forward in mid-December. Sunday Worship Services, Thursday Meditations, and intermittent gatherings will continue online as planned. Our schedule is detailed on this website. See the full "Phasing Forward" letter here.
Kids are welcome at Agape dinner church & services! Our services are intentionally intergenerationally friendly for kids. Several adults are present during services to supervise preschool and elementary school youth in doing art and other faith formation projects. Children are welcome to participate as much as they desire in the services themselves. Each service has a "Children's Moment" for kids :)
