Our mission for Church of the Heavenly Rest is to shine as a community where artistic creativity of many forms is valued as a spiritual practice and a force for reconciliation.

We aim to nurture artists,  deepen our shared experience of their work, and invite the greater community of all faiths to explore our shared humanity through art.

Heavenly Rest’s Arts Initiative is parishioner-led and features the work of local and international artists!

If you are interested in submitting a proposal for an exhibition, performance, or workshop, email Lucas Thorpe in Programs at lthorpe@heavenlyrest.org or 212-289-3400, ext 218.
