New Church Start in Worcester, MA
Outdoor Christian Church in Worcester, Mass is a new church start in the planning stages. What would church look like if we went to where the people are? Modeled after Ecclesia Cambridge and common cathedral in Boston, we are exploring how to reach people who live with mental illness, addictions, homelessness, poverty, disability, and anything else that pushes them to the edge of society.

If you can offer 8-10 hours a week, including Sunday afternoons, we’d love to have your help. No experience required, but CPE and comfort with Spanish are definite advantages. Contact Liz Magill at or 508-450-0431 if you are interested, or just want to know more.
