Citylights Community

Who We Are

An open and affirming community, learning to love well.

We are an ecumenical Christian community learning to love well in New York City. We gather together every Saturday to listen, debate, challenge, encourage and most importantly love. This is a faith laboratory, where are beliefs our put to the test, with the intention of developing a mature spiritual life. We practice the concept of Sabbath, as a way to once a week "opt-out" of the anxiety structures of our world. We take a non-legalistic approach to our faith, and welcome people where they are. While we find ourselves rooted in the Christian tradition, our community is "God-optional". All are welcome here.
