Our History

Christ the King Presbyterian Church has its beginnings in the 1995 uniting of three groups. In 1994 the Presbyterian Church in America sent Pastor Terry Gyger to plant a church in Boston and he set to work, gathering a core group that met regularly. In a fairly short period of time this groups was joined by two preexisting Brazilian congregations.
After much prayer and a remarkable financial gift the group purchased and renovated the Prospect Street building, originally of the First Evangelical Congregational Church of Cambridgeport (later called the Prospect Street Congregational Church), on July 13, 1995.
Our location in Cambridge is deliberate. We love the city and want to live in the city, pray for it, and work for its peace and well being. We want to take seriously the issues facing the city and work to bring the values of the kingdom of God to bear. We long to see the city healed and beautified.
