Welcome to Chelsea Community Church!

We are an inclusive, independent, lay-led and non-denominational Christian community; we invite you to read our brief mission statement . We also invite you to visit our meditation space here. Our congregation meets weekly, Sundays at 12 p.m., except for the month of August through Labor Day, at 346 West 20th St., New York, between 8th and 9th Avenues, where we are fortunate to be able to share the beautiful space of historic St. Peter’s Church in Chelsea.

Communion & Coffee Hour

We celebrate communion each Sunday for all who wish to participate, immediately following the worship service. We use juice rather than wine. We have a coffee hour each Sunday in the rectory, also immediately following the service. The garden is welcoming us for the warmer seasons; we particularly enjoy the coffee hours we can spend both inside and out.
