WELCOME TO BROADWAY UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST!
(Please note our new location: 263 West 86th Street, between Broadway and West End Avenue.)
“No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, YOU’RE WELCOME HERE!”
At Broadway, that is not just a tag line. We really mean it. And we invite you to come and experience it for yourself any Sunday at 5:00 pm.
Broadway is one of New York City’s historic churches, on the cutting edge of social justice and witness since 1840. We believe that a living faith in Jesus Christ demands an engagement with the world. In the past, this has meant things like a national leadership role in the pre-Civil War Abolition Movement, active engagement in the struggle for women’s suffrage and the ordination of women, and lively involvement in the Civil Rights movement. We are proud of our history, but not chained to it. Our faith calls us ever forward.
Today, God’s Spirit calls us to work for the rights and dignity of all people, believing that God’s image is reflected in human variety. One of the ways we express this belief is that since 1991 we have been an Open and Affirming Parish, welcoming gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender persons into full participation, leadership and ministry in the congregation. Broadway Church is a lively, loving and growing community. And there is a place here for you!
Wishing you Peace,

This class is based on Steven Waldman’s Founding Faith, a brief (206-page) yet authoritative history that provides an engaging introduction to the radically new ideas about church and state that lie at the core of the American experiment.
