Our history

The congregation started in 1827. The original building was destroyed by fire in January 1921; the current building was built the next year. It was dedicated in 1927 to mark the church's 100th anniversary.

Recent renovations to the building include:

  • work on the steeple in 2001
  • the exterior was painted in 2004
  • the Sanctuary and Sunday School rooms were redecorated in 2006
  • the Community Supper kitchen was renovated in 2008

In 2003, the Allston Congregational Church merged with the Brighton Evangelical Congregational Church to form the Brighton Allston Congregational Church. The Allston church had originated in 1883 when some Brighton Evangelical families living in Allston wanted to worship closer to their homes, so this was a reunion of sibling congregations.

The congregation voted in 2005 to become an Open & Affirming congregation, and in 2007 to become a sister congregation to Hoviefe Church in Ghana, Africa.
