A Bold, Exciting Place of Diversity & Welcome
Come to Middle Church as you are and who you are. While our historic mission dates from 1628, we are boldly progressive in our theology and we welcome everyone regardless of race, sexual orientation or social or economic status.
Inside Middle Church you will find the comfort of the old practiced in a bold new way. From our sanctuary lined with Tiffany windows to our innovative new M&O virtual pipe organ, from our professionally-trained Middle Church Choir to our come-as-you-are gospel choir, Middle Church is truly old time religion with an East Village flair.
Under the dynamic leadership of Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis, we would be honored to have you join us on Sundays at 11:15 am or Sundays at 6:00 pm for our worship celebrations. For a full listing of celebrations, concerts, and education opportunities, please visit our events calendar.
Welcome. Come and be home.
