Each Sunday at 5:00 P.M. an open community gathers for prayer and reflection on the lines of sacred scripture and 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.
As at every other liturgy of Saint Peter's Church, everyone is welcome.
About the Performance
Music by Ike Sturm
"As this piece progressed last Sunday, an unexpected energy and rhythmic feel emerged within our band. A joyous groove ignited spontaneously and I felt as though we were all being held by the Spirit, a gathering connected to God and one another." -- Ike Sturm
