Episcopal Church of the Heavenly Rest Tours

Episcopal Church of the Heavenly Rest
Walking along Museum Mile on New York's Upper East Side, it's hard to miss the Episcopal Church of the Heavenly Rest. The limestone-clad building facing Central Park is known for its original stained glass and the Chapel of the Beloved Disciple. Make the most of your visit by attending a worship service, or stop by after exploring Central Park.

The Basics
The Upper East Side is a luxurious neighborhood, and the Episcopal Church of the Heavenly Rest fits right in with the grand buildings nearby. Architecture fans won’t want to miss the Gothic-inspired church, known for its Art Deco design and the altar's carved reredos. Art enthusiasts should go to see the church's stained-glass windows, designed in the Arts & Crafts style.

Visit the church independently, or take advantage of a flexible hop-on hop-off bus tour—most include stops on Fifth Avenue. For a well-rounded day uptown, plan to visit the Church of the Heavenly Rest along with a nearby museum, then take a stroll in Central Park.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Check the calendar before you arrive. The church hosts everything from Sunday worship services and Bible study to Easter egg hunts.
  • The church has an accessible entrance on Fifth Avenue, and wheelchair-accessible pews in the worship space.
  • Anglican worship services are offered several times weekly.

How to Get There
Most visitors take the subway to the Episcopal Church of the Heavenly Rest. Ride the 4, 5, or 6 train to the 86th Street station. Alternatively, take the bus. Hop on the M1, M2, or M3 bus that runs along Fifth Avenue, and get out at 90th Street. The church is just ahead, on the corner.

When to Get There

The church is open every day. There are services every morning, and Holy Eucharist on Sundays. Check the church’s website for hours.

Exploring Museum Mile

The Church of the Heavenly Rest is just a stone's throw from Museum Mile, the arts epicenter of New York City. Walk outside the church, and wander uptown. You’ll find the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum; the Metropolitan Museum of Art; and New York's must-see modern arts mecca, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. If you plan to visit the always-popular Guggenheim, save time by prebooking skip-the-line tickets.
