About Trinity Church

Trinity Church, located at Broadway and Wall Street, is an active Episcopal church with a deep history. In 1697, a little over 70 years after the Dutch settled New York as a trading post known as New Amsterdam, Trinity Church was granted a charter by King William III of England. Since then, Trinity has been an integral part of New York City. Today, Trinity Church and St. Paul’s Chapel (just a few blocks north) are the cornerstones of Trinity Church Wall Street, a growing and vibrant Episcopal community.

Worship services are offered in Trinity Church throughout the week, including morning and evening prayer and a noonday Eucharist every weekday. On Sunday, the Trinity community gathers for Holy Eucharist at 9am and 11:15am, which is webcast live. All are invited to attend. Music by Trinity’s renowned choir is integrated into many of the services and free concerts are held throughout the fall and spring. Find a calendar of worship services, concerts, and other events here.

The steeple’s 12 change-ringing bells are the only set in the United States; they rotate a full 360 degrees, producing a shimmering, cascading sound in a complex combination of changing tonal patterns. They can be heard on Sundays and special occasions.

The present building is the third on the site, consecrated in 1846 and designed by British-born architect Richard Upjohn in the 19th century Gothic Revival style. The first church was lost in New York’s Great Fire of 1776 and the second was demolished in 1839, at Upjohn’s suggestion, after heavy snowfall revealed structural problems. The current building is a registered National Historic Landmark.

Visitors to the church can view the decorative bronze doors at the Broadway entrance; see some of the oldest stained glass in the United States; or stop for a moment to pray in the nave or All Saint’s Chapel, located in the northwest corner of the church. Trinity’s churchyard is also open to visitors who wish to see the gravesite of Alexander Hamilton and other historical memorials and monuments, or enjoy a moment of quiet in the midst of busy Lower Manhattan.

Free guided tours are offered Monday-Friday at 2pm and Sundays after the 11:15am service. Trinity’s Tour app also provides a virtual guide through Trinity and St. Paul’s Chapel. Free Visitors Guides in five languages are also available in the Church Gift Shop.

Nice church in the middle of tall buildings

It's nice, but was closed and inaccessible when we were there. It's next to the post office and our hotel

I went into New York on business. I exited the number 4 subway train at Wall Street and stopped at Trinity Church. I did not go inside. It is a beautiful photo op so I took a picture of it with my iPhone. The I continued on to Wall Street and my next business meeting.

This could be the very first building that captures your eyes before everything else if you took a subway ride to Wall Street. It is tall and you are allowed in for free. Perhaps allow for a brief bag check before everything else. Also, it is comparable to the grandness and beauty of the St Patrick's Cathedral (not as big... More

Beautiful architecture and a break from the chaos and noise of Manhattan. National Treasure movie fans will enjoy seeing it in person. Check out the cemetery.

Trinity Church, located downtown on Wall Street, is definitely worth a quick visit. From the exterior, to the doors, high ceilings and stained glass, everything is beautiful!

We were walking by and saw this huge bronze sculpture in the garden of the church, which is in the image of a massive tree uprooted during 9/11 fallout from the Towers. I had to go inside and sit for a moment of reflection on how this church is still standing despite being so close to ground zero. It is... More

The church and the grounds are full of American history and well worth seeing. There is a nice tribute to the 911 first responders and rescue workers.
