Welcome to Ethical Culture

The New York Society for Ethical Culture is a welcoming home for humanists. We've provided non-theistic services in a congregational setting since 1876. We embrace the diversity of our city and invite all to join us in celebrating life’s joys, supporting one another through life’s crises, and working together to make the world a better place.
Learn more about us in The Meeting House video .
We have exciting platforms every Sunday, thought-provoking events after work and during lunchtime. Sign up for our  New York Society for Ethical Culture and get alerted to all of our events!
