Overview of Trinity:

Trinity is a church on the Upper East Side of Manhattan that reflects and celebrates the diversity of the city in which we live. On any given Sunday some thirty different languages may be heard here. Our church consists of families, singles, young, and old and spans the socio-economic spectrum. Together, we strive to become like the church described in Acts — vibrant and vital. We long for Trinity to be a place where seekers are welcome, broken lives are mended, followers of Christ grow in their devotion to the Savior, gifts and talents are nurtured, the Holy Spirit is at work and the glory of the Lord shines brightly.
