For over a hundred years, we have been a spiritual home and community center that welcomes all. You can find us on the Upper East Side in the Yorkville neighborhood, 316 E. 88th Street between First and Second Avenues (near the 86th Street stop on the Q Subway). An Episcopal Church in the Anglican Tradition, we seek to follow Jesus Christ into a challenging world.
We are diverse-- black, white, Asian, Latino, and mixed; straight, gay, and undecided; younger as well as older; professional, retired, 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!)
