Owner description: Worship Service Times at Trinity Church Sundays at 9am: Holy Eucharist Sundays at 11:15am: Holy Eucharist Weekdays at 12:05: Holy Eucharist Find a full schedule of worship services here. 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. Visit Trinity Church Open daily 8am – 6pm Worship M-F at 8:15am, 12:05pm, 5:15pm; Sun at 9am, 11:15am Tours M-F at 2pm; Sun after the 11:15am service Trinity Churchyard Daily 8am – Sunset

“Nice downtown church, free admission and Alexander Hamilton's grave”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

If you are in downtown manhattan, you may as well visit this Church at the end of Wall Street. A very important church in the history of New York and the cemetary features Alexander Hamilton's grave and a monument dedicated to Robert Fulton.

“Don't miss the cemetery attached to the church. ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

Historic pre-revolutionary cemetary planted with hosta, impatiens, and coleus. Beautiful shade garden is a quiet oasis where workers lunch and church volunteers feed the homeless. Inspiring.

“Pocket of Amazing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

We walked through the park and viewed the headstones and marveled at the church and all of this history encased right there in the middle of the city bustle. If you are in the area, check it out--it was worth the small investment of time.

“Awe inspiring”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

Our family loves visiting historic churches, and this was a must see on our list. The architecture inside was amazing, the woodwork and moldings were perfectly crafted, and the stained glass windows are something that you would never see in a more modern church. We all stopped to think about all of the parishioners that have crossed through those incredibly huge and ornate doors into the sanctuary. A great place to stop and reflect prior to our visit to the 9/11 memorial on our way uptown from Battery Park.

“Beautiful OLD OLD Church”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

Built originally in the 1600's it is so interesting to see and walk through the cemetery and read the head stones. A lot of history is a small space that includes 911.
