The greater Boston area boasts more than 60 campuses, comprising over 1/4 of Boston’s population. This means that caring for Boston’s students is essential to pursuing the welfare of our city. Therefore, the University Ministry is one of our largest and most creative ministries.
Convinced that spiritual growth and care occur most effectively in community, we offer a number of Community Groups specifically for university students of seven different campuses in the Boston area. We design these groups to be ministry-balanced, aiming to pursue gospel-centered focus to love one another and to practically and consistently care for our campuses and city. In other words, they focus not only on spiritual maturity and care but also on mercy and outreach. We also make an effort to see the gospel shape the way students study and pursue their future vocations because Monday through Saturday matters just as much as Sunday. These community groups meet on various nights throughout the week on or near campuses (see the list on the right of the page). Email email@example.com for more info about these groups.
We also care about getting everyone together regularly! Below are the large group events happening this year.
Friday Night Fellowship: Free dinner, great people, loud singing, and meaningful conversation about “Life Together,” thinking out loud about how grace can bring us all together.

Campus Community Group Directory
Berklee College of Music
New England Conservatory (w/ NEC Fellowship of Christ)
Students from all over the city gather at one of Citylife's three weekly worship services. Each is designed to be a venue for exploring, deepening, and extending gospel truths toward those who attend. You are warmly encouraged to visit each Sunday.
Friday Night Fellowship [FNF]
Because students from multiple campuses call Citylife "home," we hope these Friday nights will provide the opportunity for new and meaningful friendships to be formed. Each Friday is comprised of music, discussion, and/or bible-driven teaching. We intend FNF to be a space where Christian and skeptical students alike can connect with God and one another.
Location: King's Chapel Parish House, 64 Beacon St.
(Minutes from the Boylston & Park St T-stops.)
Time: 7:00 - 9:00 pm
Campus Community Groups
We believe that Christian discipleship and growth is best carried out in community; therefore, Citylife is committed to nurturing its students through opportunities of mutual support, practical love & service, fellowship (food & fun), and learning about the Christian faith. Our campus community groups are the primary place for pastoral care where we can embody the gospel through kingdom priorities.
If you are not already in a Community Group, we encourage you to contact the leader of the CG nearest you or contact University Ministry Director, Andrew Kerhoulas, firstname.lastname@example.org
