We would love to have you join us for worship at on Sundays at 10am. Our building is located at 874 Beacon Street, Boston, MA 02215.




How should I dress?

Mid-level casual dress is what most people wear, which usually means what you are most comfortable wearing in a public place.

What is the worship style?

We do our best to encourage an authentic expression of worship. Our style is generally informal, including a mix of traditional hymns and contemporary songs. Some people raise their hands as an expression of praise to God; some people are more reserved.

Are children welcome?

All the time! We want to equip parents to be the main disciplers and spiritual influence in their children's lives. During our worship service, we provide a nursery for young children and a "Junior Bulletin" with activities and questions related to the sermon. These questions are helpful for parents, as well, to discuss with their children throughout the week.

How can I get to know people from the church?

What kind of church is Ruggles?

Ruggles Baptist Church is an American Baptist Church (ABC). Each church in the ABC denomination is autonomous, thus we are free to follow our faith and commitment to the Lord. Although we are a Baptist church, we operate more broadly in an interdenominational manner as a church in a diverse and transient area of Boston.

How long is the service?

The service is 90 minutes, from 10:00 to about 11:30 AM.

Is there parking?

There is on-street parking on Beacon Street. Meters are not in operation on Sundays. Usually there is ample on-street parking on Sundays, but we also have four parking spots in the alley behind our building that is accessible from both Park Drive and Arundel Street.

What are the best ways to get there?

The best and perhaps easiest ways to get to Ruggles is by driving, or by taking the MBTA bus or trolley lines. We are within a block of the Green C line, the St. Mary’s stop; a block from the Green D line, the Fenway stop; or two blocks from the Green B line, the Central Campus (BU) stop. There is a bus stop in front of the church where buses #47 and CT2 lines stop. (Check the MBTA – Mass. Bay Transit Authority on line for more information.)
