Looking for community and prayer? Make a connection through one of our weekly gatherings:
Wednesday Night | Evening Prayer @ 6:30 PM in the Rectory, 346 West 20th Street Swing by on your way home to join us for a time of slowing down after a busy day to pray the beautiful Evening Prayer liturgy from The Book of Common Prayer.
Post-Evening Prayer @ 7 PM - Through February 19, we'll be taking a contemplative look at Christian art and imagery as we live out our call as a fully inclusive community. How do images invite or alienate? How do we make space for the Spirit to work through us in the stories we tell? Can we change the narrative?
**On February 26, Evening Prayer will be replaced by our Ash Wednesday Service at 7 PM.
**Wednesday Night series during Lent, starting at 7 PM | The Big Quiet @ St. Peter's: An Introduction to Silence We'll be exploring the practice of silence and how to quiet our hearts and minds when there is so much internal and external noise in our lives. Beginners are especially welcome!

Thursday Night | Bible Study @ 7:30 PM near Columbus Circle Join us for the study of the Acts of the Apostles as we gather around the Word of God together and reflect on what it means to follow Jesus today as a community filled with the Holy Spirit and the love of God in our world.

Sundays After Service | Spiritual Formation @ 11:30 AM in the Rectory This Lent, our rallying cry as a church is to DECLUTTER, physically and spiritually. We want to follow Jesus wholeheartedly and freely, and let go of those things that hold us back and encumber us. Grab a cup of coffee and join us on the 2nd floor of the Rectory for these opportunities for growth and conversation:
March 1: "Decluttering the Noise: Technology and Our Attention," taught by Tim Wu, professor at Columbia Law School and author of The Attention Merchants.
March 8-29: Being Christian: Baptism, Bible, Eucharist, Prayer Book Club We're going back to the basics with this simple, profound (and short!) book by Rowan Williams, the former Archbishop of Canterbury. Copies of the book will be made available in the weeks leading up to Lent or order a copy on your own. Even if you don't read the book, all are welcome for coffee and conversation about these essentials of being a Christian.
March 8: Baptism
March 15: Bible
March 22: Eucharist
March 29: Prayer
