About

Welcome

We welcome you to Saint Thomas Church Fifth Avenue, a vibrant, growing parish of the Episcopal Diocese of New York, located in the heart of Midtown Manhattan at Fifth and Fifty-third. Our Mission is to worship, love and serve our Lord Jesus Christ through the Anglican tradition and our unique choral heritage. Please email us if you want to meet in person to learn more about our church, or to schedule a tour. See the Contact Us page for our mailing address, phone number, and email addresses. Our church doors are open every day of the year.

We invite you not only to explore this website, but more importantly to worship with us whenever you are able, whether in person or via our webcasts. You can access the webcasts for the choral services (as well as the leaflets and printed versions of the sermons) directly through the calendar. From September-May, we typically webcast five choral worship services per week.

The opportunity for you to worship with us in person is even greater: we offer at least one mass every single day of the year, and a total of (typically) twenty services per week. Some of these services are short, non-choral services of Morning and Evening Prayer followed by celebrations of the Eucharist. These brief, daily services are often quite powerful in their simplicity. Other services are more elaborate, with the full Saint Thomas Choir of Men and Boys, and it is here that you will find the richness of not only the liturgy, but also of the Anglican choral tradition. You can read more about our worship services and our musical offerings in the worship and music sections of this website.

We also invite you to join us for our excellent concert series and organ recital series; for classes for both children and adults; and for coffee hour and other fellowship activities. Details for all activities are posted on the calendar, which you can filter by type of event.

Finally, if you worship with us regularly, either in person or via the webcasts, we invite you to consider joining our Annual Appeal. Each year, Saint Thomas offers nearly one thousand opportunities to worship—many which are grand and glorious—and we cannot continue to do so without the generous support of everyone who worships with us. Please help us continue to carry the Anglican tradition forward.

We hope you join us at Saint Thomas regularly. Come and worship.
