How Central is Safely Reopening

Updated at: 06/26/2020 9:04am

Limited Reopening: Sunday Service with Livestream Beginning June 28, 10:00 a.m.

We are excited to announce that Central will be reopening its doors for in-person worship services at 10:00 a.m beginning on Sunday, June 28. For the safety of our community and in accordance with CDC guidelines, we will have limited capacity and therefore will require registration for all who plan to attend. Registration will be available starting each Wednesday at 12:00 p.m. (noon) prior to the upcoming Sunday and can be found on our website or the Central Church NYC app.

If you are unable to attend in-person, we invite you to watch our new livestream! You can watch the service at or on YouTube. If you are at higher risk for severe illness or have experienced any related symptoms in the past 14 days, we kindly ask that you continue to worship online.

For those planning to attend in-person, you must register beforehand; no walk-ins will be permitted at this time. Once the service has reached max attendance for that Sunday, we encourage you to join us online in worship. Each Sunday morning, we will have volunteers ready to guide you on where to enter the sanctuary, where to sit, and where to exit at the end of the service so that we can maintain social distancing practices. There will be no childcare, children’s worship, or coffee hour at this time. For families with young children, there will be an optional livestream available on the 6th floor. If you would like to make use of that room, please email Gretchen Roth at for further details.

The health and safety of our congregation continue to be one of our top priorities. To that end, we will continue to follow the CDC guidelines and the New York City and State requirements as we move into this new phase. We encourage you to reach out with any questions, or you can also read more about our Sunday services here.

We look forward to seeing you in person or online each Sunday!
