Planted in the heart of lower Manhattan, the River is a diverse church that welcomes New Yorkers of all backgrounds. Our goal is to create a warm & inviting space where we can connect to God and each other to pursue life in all its fullness.

Spirituality can...

...both Anchor & Energize our lives. However, the traditional approach to religion strikes many as outdated and irrelevant. Our aim is to take a Fresh Look at Ancient Truths that can serve as a foundation for our lives in the City.

So Funny and So True!

In this great clip, comedian Louis CK says "Everything's Amazing & Nobody is Happy" It got us pondering, what if faith could help us re-capture a sense of wonder and appreciation for life?

Give it a try!

You are warmly invited to check out a Sunday service. We meet at 10am and 11:45am at 90 Trinity Place (High School For Leadership & Public Service). Need more info about what happens on Sunday?
