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

“Beautiful Church”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Trinity Church is a beautiful church right in the middle of the financial district. It was under construction, but we still enjoyed the visit. Alexander Hamilton is buried here. There is not a cost to enter, though donations are accepted.

“worth seeing but under construction”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

I never realized how close the church and Wall Street were to the 9/11 Museum and where the twin towers were. Very easy walk to see those things in the same day. Trinity church is beautiful, despite being covered with scaffold. But I'm sure it will be amazing once it is complete.

“Peaceful place to visit after the crowds of other tourist spots”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

Beautiful church to visit. We found it was a place to rest and reflect both inside and in the shady garden. Well worth a visit.

“Nice downtown church, free admission and Alexander Hamilton's grave”
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. ”
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.
