Harvard-Epworth United Methodist Church is located at 1555 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, opposite the north end of the Cambridge Common, and is about a 7-8 minute walk from the Harvard Sq. Red Line exit. (Please use crossing lights!)

The church can be reached by the #77 bus, which runs about every 10-12 min at the time of our concert. The church is at the first stop (Jarvis St) as the bus exits the underground upper busway, Harvard Sq.

Coming from Arlington/N. Cambridge, get off at the last stop before the bus enters the tunnel (Waterhouse St.) and cross the street carefully. 


On-street parking meters are located north of the church on Mass. Ave., across from the church along the Cambridge Common, across the Common on Garden St., and behind the church on Oxford and Kirkland St.

Public parking lots:

Harvard visitor parking will be available to our guests by on-line pre-purchase, beginning 2 weeks before the concert.  The cost is $6 for 4 hours.
When registering,  choose as department, "Visitor to Campus" and  and  enter as the department code "7700."

Permits must be purchased prior to arrival at the parking facility, and must be displayed at all times when parked on campus. Payment may be made by credit card. Permits may not be purchased over the phone. For troubleshooting purchasing, see Harvard Parking's FAQs page, near the bottom of the page.
