Who We Are

The Church of St. Luke in the Fields is a lively, inclusive parish located in the heart of New York City's Greenwich Village. We reflect the variety of peoples in our world: different genders, sexual orientations, all forms of families, all abilities and special needs, in every socio-economic grouping, and from many cultures – all one in the body of Christ. St. Luke's is an Episcopal Church, part of the world-wide Anglican Communion, and grounded in the rich Anglo-Catholic liturgical and musical tradition. We believe that as members of the Body of Christ, we are called to ministries of worship, formation, hospitality and witness.

Our Services

What are services like?
8:00 a.m. is a quiet, meditative service in the chapel behind our main altar. It's a good way to start off a busy week. 9:15 a.m. is popular with people who have young children. Families of all kinds belong to St. Luke's--mom and dad, dad and dad, mom and mom, single parents, grand¬parents and their grandchildren. Our terrific child choristers sing at this Eucharist, which lasts slightly over an hour. It is followed by Sunday School and coffee hour. 11:15 a.m. is the choral Eucharist, and our professional adult choir sings everything from medieval Latin Mass pieces to new music commissioned for and by our parish. Most of the 20s/30s group comes to this service. It last about an hour and a half.

What is the community like?
St. Luke's draws from the homes right around the church, as well as from all five boroughs of NYC, Westchester, Jersey City, and Hoboken. Most Sundays you will see everything from jeans and t-shirts to jackets and ties. Wear what makes you comfortable. People tend to dress up for Easter and Christmas. Think somewhere between “Night of a Thousand Gowns” and what you wear to the gym. Don’t feel like you have to buy new clothes! We want to meet you!

What if I'm not a Christian?
Come right on in! Feel free to sit quietly and take it all in. We will not ask you to identify yourself or fill anything out if you don't want to.

  • This is St. Luke's new video about our presence in the community: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xs2mjd4rZbc
  • I've been a member of St. Luke in the Fields since 1992, and it is my family of choice.
  • St. Luke's gives me the perfect blend of a rich liturgical tradition, including all the "smells and bells" I could ever want, with a refreshingly down-to-earth and welcoming congregation. At difficult times in my own life, I've been humbled by the number of fellow parishioners -- even people I didn't know well -- who came up to me to let me know they were praying for me or to ask how they could help. Plus, with so many different opportunities to participate in outreach ministries and serve the parish, I've been able to give back to the community at my own speed and in ways that make best use of my abilities. A great clergy team covers all the bases: inspiring preaching, prudent stewardship, and compassionate pastoral care.
  • St. Luke's has been my parish for more than 25 years: a house of prayer, a spiritual home, and a loving support community that's gotten me through rough times.
  • I have been a parishioner for nearly 20 years. My partner and were married here. Beautiful Anglo-Catholic liturgy and astounding choir who sings music from Gregorian Chant, through the Renaissance to newly comissioned works. Truly my chosen family.
