The Allston Abbey Campaign in Honor of Bishop Alan M. Gates

Allston Abbey logo

The Allston Abbey is a collaborative mission for learning, worship and ministry sponsored by the Diocese of Massachusetts. Located on the campus of the former Church of St. Luke and St. Margaret in Boston's Allston neighborhood, Allston Abbey envisions a fresh, collaborative model of church where different ministries work together to embody the Good News of Jesus through authentic and mutual relationships with all of their neighbors.

The Allston Abbey supports four ministry streams:

  • Anglican Episcopal Community of Learning at Boston University: A collaboration to form a community of students, faculty and staff dedicated to nurturing and preparing Episcopalians and Anglicans for future leadership and service in and through the church
  • QTPOC Church: An experiment in gathering and nurturing Christian community among queer and trans people of color (QTPOC) in Greater Boston to seek ever-greater liberation in Jesus Christ
  • CRECHE/Emmanuel House: A six-person residential intentional Christian community, part of the Charles River Episcopal Co-Housing Endeavor (CRECHE) and affiliated with Emmanuel Church, Boston
  • Episcopal Community of ├ôscar Romero: A new church plant focused on the multicultural Allston neighborhood

Learn more at www.theallstonabbey.org.  This project is important to Bishop Gates and, in his honor as he prepares to retire, we look forward to raising the funds to complete it.
