Selections from Duke Ellington’s Sacred Jazz will be presented on May 31, 2019 at 7:30pm.  This event marks our Neighborhood Arts debut at Bethel A.M.E. Church.

Dr. Raymond Hammond and his wife, Gloria White-Hammond, started a church community with a mission to “make a difference in Boston, throughout America and around the world by addressing the needs of the hungry, naked, sick or imprisoned whether they be troubled in mind, body or spirit.” 25 years later that community, in collaboration with public and nonprofit educational, community, governmental and interfaith partners, Bethel A.M.E. has initiated more than 20 programs that annually serve around 2300 people in greater Boston and over 4,000 globally.

The nearest MBTA station is Forest Hills on the Orange line.  Leave the station from the ground level and walk towards the street.  Turn right and walk south on Washington Street, which turns into Hyde Park Avenue.  After 0.3 miles, turn left onto Walk Hill Street; Bethel is located on the left (intersection of Wachusett and Walk Hill Streets.)  

Free parking is located at the Youth Center at 84 Wachusett Street or any available street parking on Wachusett Street or Walk Hill Street.

A wheelchair ramp is located at the front entrance of the church which leads directly into the sanctuary; accessible bathrooms and the reception hall are easily accessed as well.
