The first two core values at Harvard Avenue Christian Church are ‘BE LOVED’ and ‘BELIEVE’. When we are welcomed into community, from wherever we’ve been and wherever we are, we can then find our way to a life of worship, study, prayer and fellowship where we can explore what we believe, and discover how it transforms our daily living.
- ‘Be Here’ information events – to help connect our visitors and new members to the life of the church
- Sunday School (Sunday, 10am)
- All of our adult Sunday School classes include Sunday 10am study options, plus service and fellowship gatherings throughout the year. (Click the class name to email for info.) You are welcome in any class at any time!
