St. Bartholomew's Church
ST. BART'S is an Episcopal Church located in the heart of New York. A sacred gem of Byzantine art and architecture, it was recognized as a New York City Landmark by the NYC Landmarks Commission in 1967. St. Bart's is an ongoing and vital preservation initiative for midtown Manhattan.
At the heart of it is worship and prayer, with services every weekday and four services on Sunday. St. Bart's is renowned for fine music, religious and interfaith education for all ages, and for its daily food and shelter for New York’s needy -- just steps from many of America’s most powerful corporate headquarters.
St. Bart’s cares for and ministers from one of the nation’s most recognized and beloved historic landmark buildings. Completed in 1918, it is composed of a Romanesque structure with Byzantine decoration. Taking up a full block between 50th and 51st Street on Park Avenue, it is a Manhattan rarity, a freestanding building in a dense corridor of corporate towers. The third church building in St. Bart’s history, it is a great sacred and civic space.
