1862 - Celebrating 150 Years - 2012


On the evening of November 2, 1862, during the troubled days of the Civil War, sixteen persons gathered and formed Pilgrim Church, "Church of our Lord Jesus Christ."  For almost one-hundred and fifty years, Pilgrim Church has continued to be a source of help, hope, and home to not just the Uphams Corner neighborhood but to the world around.


Our Urban Ministry consists of:

    * Providing Emergency shelter to 120 homeless men every night since 1990:  supplying food, clothing, showers, and rest.
    * Distributing soup, pasta, sandwiches, beverages and clothing to over a hundred needy individuals on Boston Common every Saturday morning.
    * Serving a nutritious, free lunch to over a hundred people from our community every Saturday.
    * Providing for our neighbors as well as supporting our urban ministries. Through our weekly Church flea market.
    * Serving over sixty families every month at our Emergency Food Pantry,
    * Distributing free bread three mornings every week.
    * Operating Browse Thrift Shop, maintained by Pilgrim Christian Endeavor Society.
    * Sponsoring the Dorchester Deaf Club.
    * Hosting the Dorchester Young Adult Narcotics Anonymous Group.
    * Giving opportunities for service and understanding to volunteers of many ages and backgrounds
