Trinity Church Rejuvenation

Trinity Church Wall Street is embarking upon a two-year rejuvenation project to enhance the overall worship experience, make spaces accessible and welcoming, upgrade technology and infrastructure, and address deferred maintenance. As a result, beginning Monday, May 7, the nave, or main body, of Trinity Church will be closed.

Beginning Sunday May 13, the 8 am, 9:15 am, 11:15 am, and 8 pm Compline services will take place at St. Paul’s Chapel.

The Chapel of All Saints will remain open during the closing of the nave and the following services will be held there:

Sunday Worship at 9 am
Morning Prayer Weekdays at 8:15 am and 9 am
Midday Eucharist Weekdays at 12:05 pm
Evening Prayer Weekdays at 5:15 pm

Webcasts of the Sunday 11:15 am Eucharist and the midday Eucharist each Monday through Friday at 12:05 pm will continue during the period of rejuvenation.
