Our Mission Statement


The mission of Ecclesia Ministries of New York is to form and support communities of faith in public places throughout New York, with an emphasis on creating communities made largely of people who live on the streets and who have little access to other resources.

Each 'church' worships out-of-doors in public space; spaces which already attract street people and serve as common ground for meeting and social discourse. These churches offer the same mutual support, pastoral care and worship as traditional communities of faith, but with an emphasis on needs and issues common to the marginalized of our society.
