Memorial Church, Cambridge

The church on Emmanuel Road is the home to a progressive religious institution rooted in the rationalist and tolerant Enlightenment movement that stretches back to John Locke, Isaac Newton and beyond.To those who seek out it out, in person or online, it offers community, spiritual sanctuary and inspiration as a source of pleasure and for living life well. The church looks to Christian culture, and to a modern, minimalist form of spiritual thought and practice. This is because the old forms of words, expressing the beliefs of the past, have lead many people to think that the space offered by religion for spiritual and ethical development is irrelevant in modern life. It is not. It is as essential for human flourishing as ever.
