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.
Shield

“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
