  • The Heart of Christianity

    February 21, 2024  7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

    Join us Wednesdays, January 24 through March 13, 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. for “The Heart of Christianity: On Falling in Love with God.” What is the “heart” of Christianity? In this new series, we will explore the essential beliefs of the Christian faith, focusing on the one truth that unites all others: God is love. Over the course of eight weeks, we will think about how the picture of God as love grounds our understanding of the Trinity, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, the Church, and various aspects of our life together as Christians. Classes are held in the Parish House. Participants also have the option to join by Zoom.

    Email the Rev. Dr. Nate Lee to learn more.

  • Merton and Me: A Living Trinity

    February 22, 2024  6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

    Join us in the church for a showing of the one act play Merton and Me.

    Merton and Me – A Living Trinity is an intimate act of storytelling, a spiritual journey which explores the struggles of youth, the complexities of faith, and the universal search for meaning and identity in an increasingly chaotic and divided world. Written and performed by Douglas Hertler (aka Doug Lory), and inspired by his life changing encounter with the writings of Thomas Merton, the audience is challenged to reflect on two of the most humbling and elusive of all questions: “Who am I?, and “What am I supposed to do with my life?”  While Douglas Hertler and Doug Lory struggle to understand the true nature of their respective identities, Thomas Merton appears and reappears, creating a synergy of spirit and psyche that serves as a mirror into the soul. For more information, check out the show’s website.

    The performance portion of the event will run from approximately 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and will move seamlessly into conversation with playwright and performer Doug Hertler. Conversation will run between 30 and 60 minutes, and the audience is invited to take breaks as needed. Suggested donation of $10.

Our Community

The Church of the Incarnation is a diverse Episcopal parish located in the heart of Manhattan near the Empire State Building, Grand Central Station, and the Morgan Library.

Our congregation reflects the revived Murray Hill neighborhood that is increasingly popular with young professionals. At the same time, members commute to church from every part of Manhattan, as well as from the other boroughs, Westchester, Dutchess and Fairfield counties, and urban and rural areas of New Jersey.

Worship in traditional and contemporary forms, intellectual exploration and practical application of Christian principles characterize our parish.

Office hours are 9:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday through Friday.

Open church hours are 8:00 am to 1:00 pm on Sunday, 11:30 am to 2:00 pm on Wednesday, and 5:30 to 7:30 pm on Thursday.

Our Mission

The Church of the Incarnation, grounded in living faith and inspired by the beauty of our landmark building, seeks to engage the community through vibrant and varied worship, loving and practical service to others, and intellectual exploration, with a warm and open Christian welcome in the heart of New York City.

“We love this parish. To us, Incarnation feels like an oasis of calm, beauty, faith and warmth with God all around. The Church of the Incarnation is simply a well run, well organized, and well functioning place. On a deeper level, Incarnation is a church that challenges us to be better Christians.” – Jan
