NEIGHBORHOOD CHURCH There is a grandiloquence about St. Bartholomew's Protestant Episcopal Church at Park Avenue and East 50th Street, across the street from the Waldorf-Astoria, that makes the appellation ''neighborhood church'' seem euphemistic, but the church has reaffirmed its determination to stay in the neighborhood despite offers received to buy the property. Community church is exactly what this 61-year-old Byzantine Romanesque church is determined to be, and that is why three weekdays a week at noon it has been inviting the neighbors - businessmen, office workers, tourists, whoever they may be - in for programs of diverse interest at lunch hour on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

EXHIBITION

Marcel Breuer: Furniture and Interiors

PUBLISHED

25 July 1981

GOING OUT GUIDE

By John Corry

AT THE MUSEUM The place to go today is the Museum of Modern Art. It is cool and pleasant anytime, but today a retrospective opens there of Marcel Breuer's furniture and interior designs. Perhaps the most famous piece of all - a 1925, chromium-plated, tubular-steel chair with a fabric seat, back and arms - is there, along with 36 other pieces of Breuer's furniture. Large photographs of selected interiors by Breuer, who died July 1, are installed behind the related pieces of furniture. The other thing to do at the Museum of Modern Art today is to go to the movies. There is the 1920 German film ''The Golem'' at noon, but more importantly there is the start of the second part of ''Film India.'' This is a five-month exhibition, with the second part called ''Historical Retrospective.'' (The first part was devoted to the films of Satyajiit Ray; the third is called ''Contemporary Cinema.'')
