A must see

Walked in there after a historic tour of Newport ended and were surprised to see a tour guide who gave a very interesting free tour of the church.

While walking around the scenic town of Newport, we came across this lovely church with a great history. We thought we might stop in for a quick look, knowing George Washington, Queen Elizabeth II as well as Jacqueline Onassis' mother had all visited. As it happens, a lovely, very well informed lady named Sid took us for an in depth... More

Trinity Church was not opened when we stopped by, but the structure is stunning and surroundings are spiritual. I found church and the parking by reading one of reviews on trip advisor and I'm glad we stopped here!

Church wasn't opened when we were walking by, but we walked all around it, visited the small cemetery and park in front of the majestic church.

Was only open from noon to 1:30 pm according to brochure during some week days, plus at certain times after services Called , but no answer. There was a small parking lot at the church which was blocked off. We drove around the block twice and could not find a place to park.

Couldn't help but walk in. Lovely old stones from the early 1700's under massive old trees. Just beautiful

We enjoyed listening to Rev. Alan Neale explain the Holy Trinity. It's like a dance...you must participate. He came up to us after the service and we had a great time learning more about the church and places he has lived or visited.

One of the oldest churches in those island, trinity is a great example of colonial American architecture. Perched on the side of the hill that rises from the ocean the Christ commands a beautiful view of he waterfront. It is surrounded by an old and well maintained graveyard. Don't miss it. Great colonial architecture on display.

Trinity Church sits proudly on Queen Anne Square smack in the middle of downtown Newport. You can't miss it - it's lovely white wooden spire can be seen from quite a distance. Founded in 1698, Trinity Church has the honor of being the oldest Episcopal church in Rhode Island. If you can find a spot, there is a very small... More
