“Beautiful Episcopal Church in Downtown of Newport”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

Beautiful Episcopal church in the center of Newport, built in 1726. In front of the church is a small graveyard, stones with various descriptions, and early remains of some structures. Definitely attend a Sunday service!

“Beautiful and welcoming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

We popped in to Trinity Church during the day while walking downtown because it was Easter and I wanted to see the location made (semi) famous by Moonrise Kingdom. What a magnificent, historical location. The grounds, as well, were peaceful and serene, and we spent some time reading the centuries-old tombstones.

“Focal Point of Newport”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

I was in total awe when I first looked up Queen Anne Square, and saw the magnificent spire of Trinity Church. The church , built in 1726 is the model for most all spired churches thru out New England. On the interior of this beautiful structure you will find a 'Wineglass' pulpit, which is possibly the only one left in the US.
I felt priviledged to sit in the same cubicle used by our First President, when he visited Newport during the Revolutionary War years.
Trinity is visible from most all locations, so, you can't miss this wonderful place.

“Excellent Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

The beauty and simplicity of this church are remarkable, and some of its features (pulpit, altar) are unique. And, the rector gives a fine sermon!
