Welsh Congregation of New York City

Welcome!

Come, visit us - we are the Welsh Congregation of New York City, and we invite all, the Welsh and all those who are interested in our country and our culture. Once a month we gather at Rutgers Presbyterian Church on the Upper West Side of Manhattan for worship, song and socializing.

Our services are held in both languages, so don’t worry if you are not a Welsh speaker.

Worship is led by Dr. Philip Rutherford Newell, who delivers his inspiring sermons in English. Welsh speakers give readings and lead in song. We are lucky enough to have David Enlow, one of New York’s most gifted organists as our Director of Music, providing joyful music.

We organize annual events including a Christmas Service of Carols, the St. David’s Day Service followed by a celebratory Roast Lamb and Leeks Dinner and a Cymanfa Ganu – our traditional Festival of Song with The Rehoboth Welsh Choir. After services, we all enjoy Te Bach (A traditional Welsh afternoon tea party), which is also an opportunity to socialize and learn about what is going on in the community. Please come join us, a sincere warm welcome awaits you.

Croeso!

Under Milk Wood by Dylan Thomas Played at Welsh Church Print E-mail

The sounds of Llareggub, Wales, from the dreams before first light through the mundane, personally world-shaking Spring day to nightfall and return of dreams, echoed in the church house of Rutgers Presbyterian at West 73 Street and Broadway in New York. From Captain Cat and Rosie Probert, to Mog Edwards from Myfanwy Price, from Cherry Owen to Nogood Boyo, with Gossamer Beynon and Sinbad Sailors, the characters of Dylan Thomas from Under Milk Wood came alive again...

ôrdydd from Caerdydd
arrived in Efrog Newydd in wonderful voice for the Gymanfa Ganu. Or…the mixed-voice Choir from Cardiff arrived in New York ready for the Welsh Congregational Church Annual Singing Festival. The Choir is from Cardiff, so the name is a play on words – Côrdydd from Caerdydd. We welcomed them enthusiastically in the Church’s home at Rutgers Presbyterian, 73rd Street and Broadway, on Sunday afternoon, 30 March, with daffodils springing up outside to announce the season in New York.

Carnegie Hall, midtown’s international concert venue, heard Côrdydd’s first performance in America on the previous Saturday evening. Together with award-winning composer Paul Mealor and leading Welsh harpist...
