Engage Boston: UniteBoston’s Celebration of Worship

August 17 from 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

We are excited to announce that we will be hosting a large summer worship gathering again this year on Saturday August 17th from 7:00 to 9:00pm in the Boston Common! We’re calling this year’s gathering Engage Boston: A Celebration of Worship because we want to celebrate how people are reaching across barriers and engaging one another with the love of Jesus. While many people today may have a negative view of Christianity, and Christians may often feel isolated and alone, we want to change that through coming together in a united celebration of worship. Through diverse music, song, dance, spoken word, and even painting, we can stand together for what the church is for: engaging our neighbor across barriers with unconditional love, joy, and fellowship.

In 2018, more than 1,000 people from throughout Greater Boston attended this event – Click on this link to see photos and a highlight video from last summer’s worship gathering.

Exciting Developments for This Year’s Worship Celebration

  1. This year, we have six directors who are coordinating different aspects of this worship gathering, including music performance, sound/tech, marketing, church connections, and more. These six directors are coordinating dozens of volunteers from a variety of local congregations and ministries. You can meet the people who are behind the scenes making this event happen here. 
  2. We are also collaborating with Boston Pide Vida, a one-week missionary outreach that is mainly delivered through music and the arts allowing people to be drawn to Christ through unconventional ways of sharing the gospel. From August 10th-17th, 2019, both international and local Pide Vida missionaries will be going out to share the love of God in Boston and other cities by serving them in parks, streets, shelters, colleges and youth centers. If you want to serve and love your city, connect with Boston Pide Vida at bostonpidevida@gmail.com

As you can see, we are preparing for significant growth this year and would love to have you involved!
