Formation happens in community, and nowhere is that more important for followers of Jesus than in a place like New York. Everything wants to lay claim to your heart. Being integrated into a strong ecosystem of groups and friendships is essential for authentic discipleship.
CORE communities are what we call the "radical minimum standard" for discipleship. Anyone, anywhere can participate, with no training or facilitation. This is a tool for 3 to 4 people to invest in four practices that will bear spiritual fruit. Confession, Outreach, Reading, and Encouragement. The way to join a CORE group is to start one!
We have groups of all types that meet around New York City. These groups are a great way to make new friends, build relationships, and practice the Way of Jesus with other people. Our groups move in "seasons," although we have a number of open groups that you can join at any time - click through below to see all of our available groups.

Alpha is a series of hosted dinner parties, exploring questions of life, faith, meaning, and Jesus.
Typically run over twelve weeks, each gathering explores a different question about faith, and leads to open conversation in an honest, informal space. Alpha always includes a great meal, a thought-provoking talk, and a no-wrong-answers discussion.
Come gather with the women of church of the city - whether single, married, mother's, or otherwise - and be a part of our larger community, seeking to pursue the way of Jesus together in the midst of all the complexities of life in New York City.
