Middle Rising

On December 5, 2020, our historic Middle Church sanctuary was destroyed by a fire. But no fire can stop Revolutionary Love. We’re still busy, working to heal the world with love, through worship, crisis care, small groups, justice programs, and trainings. Even as we grieve, we know that out of the ashes, something powerful is rising.

We feel the outpouring of love we’ve received from the Collegiate Church family, our East Village neighbors and from all over the globe. You’ve claimed Middle as YOUR church, and we feel your prayers. As we prepare to reimagine, redesign, reframe and rebuild our sacred space, replacing what was lost in the fire, your donation makes that possible. Thank you SO much! 

To join our movement of love and justice, and to stay connected to what we are doing in the world, go to middlechurch.org/join!

Shop our new Middle Rising merchandise collection where all proceeds support our rebuilding efforts.
