Trinity Church Wall Street is a growing, inclusive Episcopal community that carries out a wide-ranging ministry of service to others. Members come from New York and surrounding areas to form one of the city’s most diverse congregations. Today, Trinity Church and St. Paul’s Chapel are the cornerstones of the parish’s community life, worship, and mission.
Worship is at the center of parish life, with 20 services offered every week, many of which are webcast online and viewed by hundreds of thousands of people worldwide. As historic buildings and active churches, Trinity Church and St. Paul’s Chapel also welcome more than 3 million visitors and pilgrims from around the world every year. All are welcome to join Trinity in worship.
Now in its fourth century of ministry, Trinity advocates for a more just world locally and globally. As both a thriving New York City congregation and a global parish, Trinity has ties to communities and ministries seeking to serve and transform the world in Africa, Asia, and across the Americas.
Trinity’s outreach in downtown New York includes a food program that serves those in need seven days a week; the Parish Center, a free community space; St. Margaret’s House, a 251-unit subsidized apartment building on Fulton Street for elderly and disabled residents; and other ministries that confront racism and inequality, fight hunger, and build community.
Trinity’s music and arts ministry presents concerts and other arts events throughout the year, carrying forward a long artistic heritage. The parish also provides a wide variety of educational opportunities, including workshops, lectures, retreats, and other events for all ages.
