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.
ALL ARE WELCOME!
Congratulations to St. Peter’s Chelsea, our host church,
on receiving a $25,000 grant
from the New York Historic Landmarks Commission.
We are currently taking our annual August break, and there are no worship services scheduled until September 9, the Sunday following Labor Day. Watch this space for news of the speaker that day, and for the roster of fall 2018 speakers. We look forward to seeing you in September!
For an overview of recent speakers, click on “Events,” above, then then on “Speakers & Special Music.”
Since our founding we have been blessed with a number of extraordinary music directors. Approximately twice monthly we also enjoy the work of gifted musicians in our program of special music, now funded by a legacy from former music director John Eggleston. We are pleased to have the weekly services of Jeff Cubeta, above, as our CCC music director. He holds a B.S. in music education from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and is also a songwriter and works as a pianist/musical director in the concert/cabaret world.
The Reading Group meets most Sundays at 10:30 a.m. in the Rectory Chapel. This Sunday, July 29, which will be the last reading group meeting until September, we will be discussing Elizabeth Spencer’s A Christian Education and Eudora Welty’s A Still Moment in God Stories, edited by C. Michael Curtis. All are welcome; join us! If you have any questions, please email email@example.com.
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.
