Christmas on Merrick will look a little different this year due to COVID-19. The Greater Allen A.M.E. Cathedral of New York adheres to COVID regulations; therefore, we are limiting in person contact.

Tickets will not be distributed at the church this year. To receive gifts, families MUST complete the ONLINE REGISTRATION FORM. Upon registration, Drive-thru and walk-up gift distribution options will be available for you to choose from

The registration ages are, 5-12. You will be able to register a maximum of TWO CHILDREN PER HOUSEHOLD. We apologize to those who have more than two children in your household. Unfortunately, we will not be able to accommodate more than two children per household.


In observance of COVID regulations, no one will be allowed on church property until 9:00 am, when check-in begins. You will not be able to line up before 9:00 am. We will not do any day of screening or registration (mindful of COVID and safety). 


There will be a walk-up food pantry for Christmas on Merrick. No registration required.
