Rector's Welcome

Welcome to the Church of the Transfiguration located in Manhattan's Chelsea/Murray Hill/Flatiron District. We are an Episcopal Church and part of the larger, worldwide Anglican Communion, with a rich musical and liturgical tradition.

Our parish is also known as "The Little Church Around the Corner." As you will see when you read our history, this nickname stems from our proud heritage of inclusion and commitment to helping those in need. We host a diverse community embracing all people, across a vast spectrum of cultural, ethnic, racial, gender, sexual orientation, and economic backgrounds, as full members in the body of Christ.

If this is your first visit to our web site, I invite you to join us in worship and fellowship at any one of our services, coffee hour, concert series, or a simple contemplative visit to our garden and chapel. I like to think of our parish as a quiet oasis in the heart of this vibrant city. And yet we have so much going on at our "Little Church."

We look forward to seeing you soon.

The Right Reverend Andrew St. John, Rector
