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.

To use an old cliché, an oasis of calm in the bustling financial centre of Manhattan, and a fine example of Gothic revival. Well worth stopping by for half an hour and perhaps lighting a candle for a loved one.

This was beautiful church so close to Wall Street. It looks very tiny. The interior is very nice. It was worth popping in! :-)

In the craziness that is wall street, Trinity church is at the top of the street. It is simply beautiful! Definitely a must see!

After a fire in 1776 and major collapse in 1838, this is the 3rd Trinity Church that now looks like a 14th-century English parish church. But this was the church of George Washington, John Jay and Alexander Hamilton -- and is also the mother of many other Anglican NYC churches. Fascinating to visit.

It's a nice place to visit - quite and peaceful in the middle of the crowded place and inside can take some good photos and say a little prayer. The building is unique 17th century old.

This beautiful old church & cemetery have so much history. Alexander Hamilton & family are just one of the many famous people buried here. The church itself is the 3rd one on this site. The first built in 1698 and destroyed in the Great NYC fire of 1776 which destroyed 400-500 buildings. The second was completed in 1790 but was... More

On the way from Wall Street to the Smyth we saw this church and went in to see. There was a wedding in the church so we did not go in. We did walk through the grave yard. Graves or the heads can date back to the 1770s containing people from residents, to spies, solders(both British and Americans, to Alexander... More

What a beautiful church! We were there around 4:00 p.m. and the light was good. The stained glass windows were illuminated beautifully in the sunlight. It's just so interesting and wonderful to see all the meticulous details of the church inside and out. The cemetery is home to the remains of Alexander Hamilton as well as Robert Fulton - very...
