Sunday Worship Services
Morning Worship @ 11am
Join us for our celebratory, arts-based Morning Worship at 11:00 am each Sunday at Fort Washington Collegiate Church! Our services feature lively music, powerful and relevant preaching, opportunities to connect and be in community, and prayer time.
Children & Youth
Nursery Care: The nursery is open and care is available for infants and toddlers between ages 0-3 with Hilda McCrillis in the nursery just behind the Sanctuary. Care is available before and during worship (10:30am - 12:15pm)
The Upper Room: After the Children's Time and during the Passing of the Peace, children 4 years of age through 4th grade are invited to the Second Floor for Sunday School in Classroom #208. Caregivers and parents are invited to pick up their children after service.
Youthful Voices: All children who love to sing are invited to rehearse with Mia McClain on the 1st, 2nd, and 4th Sundays immediately after Sunday School. Some music will be done during the Sunday School hour as well.
SWERVE: All youth (grades 5th - High School) are invited to join the Associate Minister Bridget Kelso Anthony on select Sundays after the Passing of the Peace.

Evensong (ON HIATUS) is a very different kind of worship experience than our 11 am service. The contemplative service focuses on the experiential: poetry, scripture, candle lighting, healing prayer, beautiful music, and a simple communion liturgy will serve to create a peaceful, reflective atmosphere. Join us for a time to “just be” and to listen for God’s voice and to connect with the Divine.
Instead of a sermon, rotating members of the community offer brief testimonies on “where they are experiencing God now.” It’s a safe place for people from all kinds of different backgrounds and spiritual traditions: those who have been estranged from church, those who experience and connect with God in more mystical ways, and those who are seeking to broaden the spiritual journey they are already on.
Come As You Are!
One of the questions we’re often asked is, “what should I wear?” Attire at our services ranges from casual to formal, but we encourage you to come dressed as you would normally.
Following every Sunday’s worship service, we have fellowship time with our church community. We invite you to join us for coffee, occasional pastries, and almost monthly luncheons to connect with your neighbors in Washington Heights. We come from many walks of life and different parts of New York City, but we are one church family.
All Are Welcome!
We are an open and affirming congregation that fully includes LGBTQ persons in the life of our church. LGBTQ persons serve in church leadership, celebrate weddings and baptisms, and preach regularly. We invite all who have been hurt by other churches’ inclusion to give Christianity another chance at Fort Washington Collegiate Church.
