For over a hundred years, we have been a spiritual home and community center that welcomes all. We are located in the Yorkville neighborhood on East 88th Street between First and Second Avenues on New York's Upper East Side (near the 86th Street stop of the new Q Subway Line). An Episcopal Church in the Anglican Tradition, we seek to follow Jesus Christ into a challenging world.
Come and visit us. Spend time with us. Help us as we continue to learn what it means to be friends and followers of Jesus Christ.
We are diverse-- black, white, Asian, Latino, and mixed; straight, gay, and undecided; younger as well as older; more and less well-to-do, professional, retired... we are students, professors, opera buffs, football fans, writers, artists, 'math-letes', couch potatoes, fans of Shakespeare and SNL, from-the-cradle Episcopalians, new converts, and beginning spiritual searchers. (And this doesn't quite cover everyone!)
