The Church of St. Luke in the Fields
487 Hudson Street
New York, NY 10014
Welcome to St. Luke's!
The Church of St. Luke in the Fields is a lively, inclusive Episcopal Church located in the heart of New York City's Greenwich Village.
An Episcopal Church, and part of the world-wide Anglican Communion.
We are grounded in the rich Anglo-Catholic liturgical and musical tradition. We reflect the variety of peoples in our world: different genders, sexual orientations, all forms of families, all abilities and special needs, in every economic grouping, and from many cultures – all one in the body of Christ.
Wherever you are in your life with God - whether a hesitant searcher or a long-time churchgoer - we invite you to think of St. Luke's as your spiritual home.
As you enter on a Sunday morning, you will notice an atmosphere of reverence and preparation. Many are involved in setting up and leading worship, and a choir might be rehearsing. Others arrive early to spend time in quiet prayer. Our central focus is the altar, the holy table that faces the front doors, a table to which all are welcome.
On or near the altar there are candles to remind us that Christ is the "Light of the world.” On one side at the front of the church, there is a pulpit, or stand, for the “proclamation of the Word;” here the Scriptures are read and/or the sermon is preached. Restrooms are available by following the side aisle past the pulpit and through the door on your right.
You may sit anywhere you like; there are no reserved seats. Ushers will greet you, hand you a service bulletin, and if you wish will escort you to a pew. If you desire, they will answer your questions about the service. Find a place that is comfortable for you, and make sure that you can see the pulpit and the altar. In the pews you will find the Book of Common Prayer (a small black book with a cross on it), a Hymnal (a reddish colored book with hymns) and Wonder, Love and Praise (an alternative hymnal has a dark green soft cover). Most of the service is printed and explained in a bulletin, provided by an usher as you enter. Aside from the bulletin, the Hymnal is the resource used most often.
Due to COVID-19, we have suspended in-person Sunday worship until further notice.
We offer a livestream Rite II Eucharist on Sunday mornings at 10:30 am, and beginning on September 30, an in-person Rite II Eucharist on Wednesdays at 6:15 pm with livestream. Pre-registration is required to attend Wednesday evening services.
Our services may be watched at our Vimeo Channel.
