The informal tours are great and they are only by donation so you don't have to feel pressured into paying a lot for it. This place was so intriguing that I actualy went back for Sunday service and it was a highlight of my trip. The congregation, Rev and service were truly lovely.

Trinity Church is a gorgeous structure that sits right in the middle of downtown Newport, RI. It's tall white steeple is distinctively on display for all to see, and it's interior has been home to services since the 1600s. However, if you decide to visit, you should know that this exterior of this attraction is currently under "remodeling," with scaffolding covering almost the entire exterior of the building. I do not know when this is to be completed, but you will not enjoy the full view of the church until the scaffolding is removed. Still, it is a wonderful sight, and the services should still be running uninterrupted.

The little area around the church was great! There were old brick roads and old fashioned lamps for street lights. We walked through the cemetery, fascinated by how old some of those gravestones were! It was just interesting to take a step back in time for a while and view the beautiful old church.

Right on the main strip, yet centuries back in time.

Really nice cemetery on the premises followed by some awesome displays and history provided by volunteers who proved to be very knowledgeable and passionate about the church, it's history and the benefit it brings to the community.

A friend and I visited Trinity Church recently and found it to be lovely. The couple who gave tours obviously love their church and were so friendly to us as we toured. Many people know all about the mansions in Newport, but Newport has so much more to offer! This beautiful, historical church is one of the charming extras of Newport. A donation is greatly appreciated but not expected. However, once we made a donation, we received a booklet about the church. I felt that I received more than I gave!
