JAZZ AT SAINT PETERâ€™S CHURCH
Each Sunday at 5:00 P.M. an open community gathers for prayer and reflection on the lines of jazz.
The community is diverse and includes people
who live near and far, native and new New Yorkers, and people visiting New York City. Oftentimes churches will bring groups from their home congregations. Others are not Christians or are exploring Christianity for the first time in this supportive environment. Musicians from New York and throughout the world come to play.
You do not need a ticket or reservation of any kind to attend a liturgy at Saint Peter's Church. As at every other liturgy of Saint Peterâ€™s Church, everyone is welcome.
