The Riverside Church is an interdenominational, interracial, international, open, welcoming, and affirming church and congregation.

Whoever you are: You are safe here. You are loved here. You are invited into full participation in our life together.

Modeled after the 13th Century gothic cathedral in Chartres, France, and built by John D. Rockefeller Jr., The Riverside Church is situated at one of the highest points of New York City, overlooking the Hudson River and 122nd Street. It is 100 feet wide and covers two city blocks. Construction began in 1927 with the first service held on October 5, 1930. The Nave seats nearly 2,000 worshipers. The 20-floor tower, rising to a height of 392 feet, contains offices, meeting rooms, and the 74-bell Laura Spelman Rockefeller Memorial Carillon. The carillon’s 20-ton bourdon bell is the largest tuned bell in the world. The smallest bell weighs just 10 pounds.

Today, Riverside remains one of the leading voices of Progressive Christianity, influential on America’s religious and political landscapes for more than 85 years. Currently led by Rev. Dr. Amy Butler, Riverside has long been a forum for important civic and spiritual leaders, including Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Nelson Mandela, President Clinton, the Dalai Lama, and countless others.
