Trinity Church Wall Street is a growing and inclusive Episcopal parish that seeks to serve and heal the world by building neighborhoods that live Gospel truths, generations of faithful leaders, and sustainable communities. We are guided by our core values: faith, integrity, inclusiveness, compassion, social justice, and stewardship. Members come from New York City and surrounding areas to form a racially, ethnically, and economically diverse congregation. 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 streamed online and viewed by hundreds of thousands worldwide. As historic buildings and active churches, Trinity Church and St. Paul’s Chapel also welcome more than three million visitors and pilgrims from around the world every year.
Now in its fourth century of ministry, Trinity works daily to build generations of faithful leadership, to build up neighborhoods, and to build financial capacity for holy service in New York City and around the world. 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 City includes worship services six days per week at Trinity Church and St. Paul’s Chapel, a food program that serves people experiencing food insecurity seven days a week; the Trinity Commons, our new community space; the Trinity Retreat Center in West Cornwall, Connecticut; St. Margaret’s House, a 251-unit subsidized apartment building on Fulton Street for elderly and disabled residents; and many additional ministries that promote social justice, confront racism and inequality, and build neighborhoods and community. Trinity is also helping others build leadership and financial capacity, and recently entered into a formal partnership with Church Divinity School of the Pacific in Berkeley, CA to foster CDSP’s growth, deepen its impact, and promote the development of future leaders of the church. In all our ministries, we endeavor to be good stewards of the gifts we have been given and embody compassion, integrity, and all of our core values.
Trinity’s music and arts ministry presents concerts and 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.
