FAQs

When are your services located?

During the months of July and August, we hold one 10:00am service at our PT South campus. Pentecostal Tabernacle worships in two locations in Central Square, Cambridge. If you’re attending our 8:30am service, join us for worship at our PT North campus located at 77 Columbia Street. If you would prefer a later service, join us at 11:30am at our PT South campus located at 56 Magazine Street.

There is a parking lot next to our PT North campus, and street parking is available at both sites. For those who are commuting, we’re a short walk from the Central Square T Station.

Do you provide child care?

We provide nursery for young children ages 0-4, and Sunday School for children aged four through high school from 9:45 – 10:45am at 345 Washington Street (across the street from PT North).

We also provide nursery for young children, ages 0-4 from 11:15am to 1:30pm at PT South. For more information about our Nursery and Sunday School, please click here to visit the Children’s page.

What is your congregation like?

Pentecostal Tabernacle is a multi-cultural, multi-ethnic, and multi-generational church. We are situated between Harvard University and MIT, and have a large population of students and families that attend our church. Whether you are nine or ninety, or come in formal attire or a pair of jeans, we welcome you.

What can I expect on a typical Sunday?

We offer seating in both of our main sanctuaries, and overflow seating with closed circuit television in our fellowship halls. The 8:30am service typically runs for 90 minutes, while the 11:30am service usually lasts for 2 hours. Communion is held on the first Sunday of each month.

Pentecostal Tabernacle is a church that strongly believes in the power of prayer, and we have fifteen minutes of corporate prayer before each service. Feel free to join us in prayer at your seat. After this, our praise and worship team will open up the service with 3-4 songs.

At our 8:30am service, our Bishop will then deliver the sermon and release the children around 9:30am to attend Sunday School. After the sermon, we will welcome the visitors. If this is your first time visiting PT you will be asked to stand so we can recognize you, and be given a welcome packet by one of our greeters. This will be followed by the announcements and the offering under the direction of our ushers. Our Bishop will then conclude the service with a closing prayer.

At the 11:30am service, we will welcome the first time guests after praise and worship. Following this will be the announcements and the offering. Our Bishop will then deliver the sermon, and conclude the service with a closing prayer.

At Pentecostal Tabernacle we believe in the personal touch. We invite you and those who accompanied you to join us at a welcome reception directly after the service you’ve attended. Both receptions are held in the Fellowship Hall. If you would like prayer, please remain in the sanctuary where a member of our prayer team will be happy to pray with you. They will be standing at the front of the sanctuary after each service.

How do I become a member?

We invite you to learn about the rich membership experience at Pentecostal Tabernacle. We believe that building relationships with God and with other believers is the key to connecting to the Kingdom.

Whether you’re a neighbor seeking a permanent congregation or a visitor looking for a short-term connection to a church in Cambridge, MA, we urge you to consider partnership. We consider our members “Partners” because they are true stakeholders in our church.

Does your church have mobility device accessible seating?

We are in the process of repairing our chair lift at our PT North campus, so for the time being the main sanctuary is not mobility device accessible.

At present, the sanctuary at our PT South campus is not mobility device accessible, however you may watch the service on a closed circuit television in the fellowship hall (which is accessible).
