Judson Memorial Church

Judson Memorial Church, 239 Thompson street, New York, NY 10012

The Judson Memorial Church is located on Washington Square South between Thompson Street and Sullivan Street, opposite Washington Square Park, in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of the New York City borough of Manhattan. It is affiliated with the American Baptist Churches USA and with the United Church of Christ.

The church sanctuary, its campanile tower and the attached Judson Hall were designated landmarks by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1966, and were added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.

Current minister Donna Schaper (2006-present) is dedicated to providing "spiritual nurture for public capacity" for Judson's growing congregation, which now numbers approximately 250. Under her leadership, along with Associates, Michael Ellick (2007-2014), and Micah Bucey (currently), Judson has begun several new programs – the experimental “Community Ministry” training program, the recession-addressing “Bailout Theater,” and has taken a leading role in the New Sanctuary Coalition of NYC (See separate tabs on these and other current Judson programs.)

Judson is proud of its history, but much more interested these days in shaping the present and looking to the future.
