First Church in Cambridge Congregational is located at 11 Garden St., which is at the corner of Garden and Mason streets, just across Mason Street from the old Radcliffe campus and just across Garden Street from the historic Cambridge Common. The First Church is right next door to the Sheraton Commander Hotel. 


Parking is limited, but available spots can usually be found along the residential streets near the church. A parking permit is not required on Sundays. There are two accessible (or disability) parking spaces on Garden Street in front of the church. Remember that use of these spaces requires a disability plate or placard.  

Public Transportation: 

The closest T stop is Harvard Square. For those traveling by T, if you leave the station at the main exit into the heart of Harvard Square, cross Massachusetts Avenue directly across from the station and go right, following the street until the corner with Garden Street. Go left at Garden and stay on that street until you come to the corner of Mason Street.

You can also take the Church Street exit out of the Harvard T stop, which is at the corner of Massachusetts Avenue and Church Street. You will already have crossed Massachusetts Avenue underground, so from that exit, go right and follow the same path as above, crossing Church Street and the next corner is Garden Street. Go left there and stay on Garden Street until you come to the corner of Mason Street.
