Time and Location
Worship Service Time and Location
Our lives are filled with screens. Work, entertainment, connection — so much of it has become virtual. While this had made lots of things more flexible and accessible, it’s also true that we miss something important when we live and relate in two-dimensions. We long for an embodied feeling of presence with God and with other humans.
At Redeemer East Side, we believe worshiping together is one of the many ways we experience God tangibly. As we sing, pray, and connect, we grow individually and communally. There’s nothing like being physically present with one another. We’d love for you to be part of it.
We offer two services on Sundays at 9:30 and 11:30 am.
For special service times during holiday seasons, please check our calendar.
We meet at Temple Israel, located at 112 E 75th St, New York, NY 10021 (East 75th Street between and Lexington and Park Avenues). Our services are currently being held in the ballroom, two floors below the sanctuary, while the sanctuary undergoes renovation.
Thank you for your generous support Redeemer East Side. You can make a single gift or set up a recurring gift online.

Redeemer East Side is committed to the safety and care of our church family and our neighbors. We remain flexible as the local and federal guidelines continue to shift. Based on current protocols, masks are optional and all are welcome to worship without wearing masks or social distancing. Masks are available if you desire. Out of respect for others, we ask that you stay home if you are experiencing any symptoms, have had a positive COVID-19 test in the last 10 days, or have had close contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19 in the last 10 days.
