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

“Pretty interior with thought-provoking exterior..”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Visiting the Trinity Church was not part of my planned itinerary but we came across it when exiting the subway and I must say it's nice to be able to visit this church on our trip.. We first came face to face with the cemetery, which is rather thought-provoking for me.. The exterior of the church was surrounded by scaffolding, its a pity we couldn't get to see its full beauty.. The interior of the church is very grand and astonishing, you must see it with your own eyes!

“Friendly People, Pretty Place”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

If you like to see what the world was like in Manhattan, many, many years ago this is a nice place. It has a beautiful garden and lovely church to contemplate in solitude. I had such a great time contemplating that I forgot my phone at the church! I was very lucky when I called they had the phone in the lost and found and did everything they could to help me retrieve it! Thanks to the friendly folks at Trinity Church, my phone is now safely with me!

“Historic Site with much to offer”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

First off...good for a bathroom stop in lower Manhattan. This church has lots of historic connections and is welcoming to all. Lunchtimes often mean free concerts or rehershal for that evenings concert. Traditional Episcopal worship done very well, indeed.

“History Amongst the Skyscrapers”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

This beautiful piece of history is nestled amongst all the soaring buildings of the financial district of NYC. I was a bit disappointed that the exterior was completely covered in scaffolding, but the inside more than made up for it. I felt like I had stepped into one of the many cathedrals I had visited in Europe. The stained glass and the statues were all just lovely. It was a little dark inside for pictures but it added to the atmosphere of the church. Please take the time to see this church if you are down near Wall Street.

“Nice service, easy to find”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Right on the Trinity subway stop, this beautiful church has a lovely old graveyard that you're welcome to walk through. The services are lovely and you feel right at home, even as an out-of-towner.
