Small Group Ministries

Small group ministries at Trinity Wall Street offer an abundance of activities where parishioners and friends come together for fellowship and to talk, write, eat, and pray (and sometimes knit). Join us as companions on the journey, as we share our stories, finding God in and through each other.

What Makes Your Heart Sing?

Have a passion or idea you would like to share with others? Don’t keep it to yourself! Why not facilitate a small group at Trinity? Is there a group you miss? Why not reimagine it and revive it anew? Your gifts are welcome here—let our community know about them. Don’t worry if you’ve never facilitated a group before; past experience isn’t necessary—just a willingness to enrich our community with your unique abilities and a desire to build relationships with others. Contact Kevin Grant or Ellen Andrews at or 212.602.0753 with your ideas, and we’ll work together to see what can be achieved. It will do you (and Trinity!) a world of good.
