Our Story – Redemption Hill Church launched in 2011. We are a growing, multi-ethnic church located in Medford, MA (four miles north of downtown Boston). Our passion is to help people follow Jesus in all of life and see God’s kingdom come “in Boston as in heaven.” We do this as a worshiping community that connects on Sundays and in Groups. Guided by the Word and empowered by the Spirit, we equip people to serve God’s mission from New England to the Nations.
