Central is a very welcoming community! We are bound together by a commitment to the gospel of grace, so on a typical Sunday morning you should expect to be enthusiastically greeted by a broad cross-section of New Yorkers from all walks of life who are struggling together to understand and live out the story of Christianity. Many people have been committed Christians for several years while others may have recently begun exploring the Christian faith, which means that Central is a great place for committed Christians and interested inquirers alike.
Feel free to dress in whatever way makes you most comfortable. Some people come in jeans while others prefer to sport a tie or wear a dress. If it comes down to a decision between skipping worship or arriving in your cycling gear, we would prefer that you come as you are! We would like nothing more than for you to join us.
We at Central love children and believe that they should be both seen and heard! We encourage the children to worship alongside the adults during the first part of the service. Following the “Prayer with Children,” the children are welcome to stay in the sanctuary for the remainder of the service or they may attend Children’s Worship on the 7th floor.
Central meets for worship at 593 Park Avenue on the corner of 64th Street and Park Avenue every Sunday at 9:00am, 11:00am, and 5:00pm.

Please let the caregiver know of your child's special needs. We strive to provide a safe, warm, and healthy nursery in order to love and provide for your children.
Nursing Mother's Room
The nursing mother's room is located on the mezzanine floor on Sunday mornings from 9:30am to 12:30pm and 4:30pm to 6:30pm on Sunday evenings. There is a sofa and chairs as well as a diaper changing area and supplies. We hope this will be a comfortable place for mothers to care for their infants while also being able to hear what is being sung and said in the Sanctuary.
