Our Southie location meets Sundays at 10:15AM at LearnLaunch Institute located at 281 Summer Street, Floor 2, South Boston, MA 02127.


Southie, you've been amazing! However, due to venue limitations, our leadership has decided to close our Southie community and consolidate in one location in our permanent location in Newton Upper Falls. Our last service in Southie will be on Sunday, October 28. As part of our consolidation plan, we will be able to offer a shuttle team from the green line for those of you who would like to commute in from the city. Therefore, should you want to continue worshiping with us in Newton, we are happy to make it easy for you to attend. Furthermore, we will continue to host a city-location GROW group for our members who are T-bound. If you need help finding a church that's closer to you in South Boston, we are happy to make recommendations. Just email Thank you for two amazing years!

The Service

You'll experience a very friendly community (that's one of our best features) that is very diverse, filled with both Bostonian natives, transplants and transients. Everyone comes from different spiritual journeys, too. Some people are Catholic or Jewish, while others come from a Protestant background, but there are many people who don't necessarily identify as a "church" or "religious" person at all, and simply enjoy our non-denominational presentation and exploration of faith.

You’ll experience a life-giving (probably funny) sermon, contemporary music, and friendly people who dress from business casual to super comfy. The whole service lasts less than 90 minutes.

We have free coffee and pastries waiting on you! And if you have children, they'll enjoy our amazing kids ministry services that run concurrently with your service.

The Venue

The Southie Community meets in the office space of LearnLaunch Institute, which is a modern, flex office space. It's only a 5-minute walk from South Station, and there's plenty of free street parking, as well as a $5.00 parking garage located nearby (details below). The building is completely handicap accessible with elevators and ramps in and out of our service.

If you’re anywhere close to the Greater Boston area, we would love for you to visit us in person.

Parking Options: Lots of street parking available in front of the venue! If a garage is preferred or necessary, there are two close by: Channelside (more info here) or Necco (more info here). They're both only $5 on Sundays!

Community Pastors

Our South Boston location is led by Community Pastors Steve & Ali Engstrand, Boston-area natives and proud Patriots fans. Steve and Ali both grew up just outside of Boston and attended Bentley University and Northeastern University, respectively. After planting themselves at StoryHeights in 2012 and making the radical decision to live their lives according to God's word, Steve and Ali got married in November 2013 by Pastor Tyler Tullos, and what a beautiful day it was! They have been faithful week in and week out during their time at StoryHeights, both at Sunday services and in their daily walks with God. We consider it an honor and privilege to have them leading the charge for our Southie community.

Plan Your Visit

If you’ll let us know you’re coming as a guest, our great volunteers will help make your first time at StoryHeights Church an easy experience. We believe church should be a place you look forward to being at and a little bummed when you have to leave, and we do everything we can to make this a reality. We hope you’ll join us soon.
