Welcome to Chelsea Community Church - Our 40th Anniversary Year!

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.

We are  pleased to welcome our new pastoral counselor, Rev. Jose Roman, who will be with us when we resume services after Labor Day!

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.   Read More

Communion & Coffee Hour at Chelsea Community Church

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.  


Next Sunday

August through Labor Day:  CCC will have its annual summer hiatus, and there will be NO WORSHIP SERVICES until the Sunday, September 13th.


The Summer Newsletter (June-August) is available. If you don’t already receive our quarterly newsletter via e-mail or postal mail, please let us know if you would like to be on the list for either form of distribution.  The Fall Newsletter (September-November) will be available sometime in August.
