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's nave 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, which is webcast live. All are invited to attend. Music by the renowned Choir of Trinity Wall Street is integrated into many of the services and free concerts are held throughout the fall and spring.

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.
Due to an interior rejuvenation project which began in May 2018 and will be completed in early 2020, some areas of Trinity Church will be inaccessible to visitors. The nave, or main part of the church, is now open daily for services and prayer. 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.
No tours of the church building will be offered until conclusion of the rejuvenation project. Tours of Trinity churchyard are available by request, weather permitting. Tours of St. Paul’s Chapel are offered upon request as the Chapel’s schedule allows.
