Trinity is a grant-making organization, streaming funds throughout the city and the world, as well as a resource for Lower Manhattan's commuters and tourists, who find inspirational music within its walls.
Through its congregational staff and maintenance teams, it is a sacred oasis amid the busy downtown streets.
It is an important player in the world of New York City commercial realty, and home to an award-winning preschool. It is the home to the committees, guilds, and task-forces of a congregation committed to bringing God's Kingdom to this world.
Trinity also sponsors an annual national theological conference that gathers top thinkers to the church nave, and a series of related small group gatherings, meetings, and classes for Christian formation. Also part of the Trinity family is this award-winning website.
Trinity is a home for the elderly and disabled. It is also the home of St. Paul's Chapel, the "little chapel that stood" after September 11, which now serves as a congregation for peace and reconciliation.
