Who We Are
St. Lydia's is a Dinner Church! We gather every Sunday and Monday night to cook and share a sacred meal, just as the first followers of Jesus did. We eat, explore scripture, offer prayers, and sing together.
We are a progressive congregation in New York City, located in Gowanus. Our worship is rooted in the patterns of the Early Church, and we are tied to the Lutheran and Episcopal traditions. All are welcome at the table.
We also host a co-working space during the work week, where freelancers or anyone who would normally work from home or a coffee shop can work side by side in community.
St. Lydia's is an experiment in what the Church might be when the meal we share is at the center of our common life. We're building this together—come and join us!
