When the novel coronavirus pandemic began in March 2020, Trinity Church Wall Street was in the final stages of an almost two-year rejuvenation project to enhance the overall worship experience, make spaces accessible and welcoming, upgrade technology and infrastructure, and address deferred maintenance.
In order to halt the spread of COVID-19, Trinity ended all public worship Thursday, March 12. Online-only Holy Eucharist is live-streamed at trinitywallstreet.org six days a week, on Sunday at 11:15am and Monday through Friday at 12:05pm. You can also watch these services and sermons on-demand.
Trinity Church, St. Paul’s Chapel, and all of Trinity’s buildings will remain closed until further notice. Trinity’s Chapel of All Saints had already closed in February for its own period of rejuvenation.
During this period of “social distancing,” in addition to the six weekly celebrations of Holy Eucharist, the parish also offers a robust schedule of prayer, Bible study, spiritual practices, self-care opportunities, and community-building events in which you can participate online as you remain safe in your home.
Trinity will continue to share content related to the rejuvenation, including video and photography from Colin Winterbottom, who documented the project for two years. This material will include historical information about Trinity’s 324 years as a neighbor to Lower Manhattan in New York City.
Trinity looks forward to the day when we can reopen to the public for worship, fellowship, and community gatherings. At that time, we plan to resume our longtime custom of offering tours of Trinity’s buildings and grounds.
