Who We Are
Come, visit us - we are the Welsh Congregation of New York City, and we invite all, the Welsh and all those who are interested in our country and our culture. Once a month we gather at Rutgers Presbyterian Church on the Upper West Side of Manhattan for worship, song and socializing.
Our services are held in both languages, so don’t worry if you are not a Welsh speaker.
Worship is led by Dr. Philip Rutherford Newell, who delivers his inspiring sermons in English. Welsh speakers give readings and lead in song. We are lucky enough to have David Enlow, one of New York’s most gifted organists as our Director of Music, providing joyful music.
The church service is followed by a "tê bach" to which all are welcome for a good Welsh tea and fellowship. In addition to the Christmas Service of Carols, the Church has two great celebrations during the year: The Annual St. David's Service and Dinner in March, and the Cymanfa Ganu, Festival of Song, in April.
We encourage you to join us for these events.
