Adult Religious Education Committee
The mission of the Adult Religious Education (ARE) Committee is to deepen our religious understanding and spiritual development, to cultivate and develop friendships, and to support and pass on the traditions of the Society of King’s Chapel.
Adult religious education takes a variety of formats, led by the minister, guests, or parishioners. Some events are for one evening or after church, some are classes with several sessions, and one is the annual weekend retreat at Glastonbury Abbey. Participants are asked to sign up for all events, as class size may be limited.
The senior minister leads a weekly meeting Thursdays during the day to practice Lectio Divina, a practice of reflection on Bible passages.
Tuesday Morning Meditation
An early Tuesday Morning Meditation group meets weekly in our beautiful Little Chapel at 64 Beacon St. to practice meditation. All are welcome.
Theology on Tap
Our assistant minister leads a lively, informal discussion on the third Wednesday of each month on timely religious topics.
Minns Lecture Series
A joint committee composed of representatives from King's Chapel and the First Church of Boston oversees the Minns Lectureship each year. Acting on a bequest from Susan Minns, who attended King's Chapel, in memory of her brother, Thomas, who was a member of First Church, the Minns Lectureship Committee calls for, discusses, selects and helps make public scholarly proposals from UU ministers for a series of lectures to be delivered each year.
