Trinity Church Wall Street is a welcoming, inclusive Episcopal community that worships at two historic Lower Manhattan churches – Trinity Church and St. Paul’s Chapel. Visitors of all faiths are invited and encouraged to take part in daily online worship services, virtually explore the buildings and grounds, and watch free concerts and neighborhood events.
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.
Church and churchyard are currently closed to the public except for Sundays at 11:15am for Holy Eucharist beginning May 23, 2021.
