<p>The Church on the Hill, or the Boston Society of the New Jerusalem, is a Christian church following the teachings of Swedenborgianism,&nbsp;a movement created in the 18th century by Swedish scientist and theologian Emanuel Swedenborg.&nbsp;</p> <p>The church was established in 1818 but traces its creation in Boston back to 1784, when a group of men started meeting regularly at the Green Dragon Tavern to discuss Swedenborg's teachings before deciding to form a church. The church has been on Beacon Hill since 1845. &nbsp;</p> <p>The atmosphere is very warm and welcoming. The sanctuary is a down-to-earth, intimate setting for worship and the church has lots of community room space used for church functions and by various nonprofit groups.&nbsp;</p> <p>There's free garage parking for church worshippers on Sundays. The church is currently looking to expand its base of younger members and is on a mission to welcome younger members with new initiatives and programs. If you go, be sure to check out the delightful (and sizable) tropical fish tank outside the church's office.&nbsp;Services are held every Sunday at 11am.</p>
