Trinity Church in the City of Boston, located in the Back Bay neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts, is a parish of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts. The congregation, currently standing at approximately 4,000 households, was founded in 1733. Five services are offered each Sunday, and weekday services are offered three times a week from September through June. Within the spectrum of worship styles in the Anglican tradition, Trinity Church has historically been considered a Broad Church parish.
In addition to worship, the parish is actively involved in service to the community, pastoral care, programs for children and teenagers, and Christian education for all ages. The church is home to several high-level choirs, including the Trinity Choir, Trinity Schola, Trinity Choristers, and Trinity Chamber Choir. The building, designed by Henry Hobson Richardson, is currently under study for becoming a Boston Landmark.

The heart of Boston, not only architecturally but also a vital part of our community.

Beautiful church. We took the guided tour and it was excellent. The tour guide was very informative about every little detail in the church. The stained glass was magnificent. The guided tour took us to the basement level which showed the foundation of the church. Well worth the cost of the tour.

Best to check out church website a few days or even a day before coming. Church was under construction and closed early. Still, a very beautiful historical site just from the outside.

Absolutely gorgeous. An incredible example of restoration done right. Architecture that makes you feel things.

This landmark church could easily get by on its breathtaking architecture and amazing choir. However, the priests are gifted orators, the community is very warm and welcoming (find a group within the church community--800+ members is too big to know everyone), and it is the perfect combination of liturgically intensive and affirming and welcoming to all. This is not a generic church that simply welcomes everyone and stands for nothing. Attendees will be challenged personally and social from the pulpit with an often strong social gospel. This is a vibrant Christ-centered shining jewel in the heart of Boston!

I decided to visit this church with my family based on the fact the we are episcopal and how beautiful the building was. When we arrived I was eager to hear what the sermon was going to be about. I was completely let down because the entire sermon was polititical and very VERY political at that. I left halfway through because I just couldn’t take listening to it anymore. I truly couldn’t believe what I was hearing.

Heretical to Holy Scripture. But lovely architecture. Good social club but not appropriate for those who want to be true disciples of Jesus and go to heaven after death.

Trinity Church is a Episcopal church and national landmark that makes for a very interesting place to see at Copley Square. Opening Hours for touring are 9-4.45pm (Monday - Saturday) and 11.15-5.45pm (Sundays). Founded in 1733, what makes Trinity Church most impressive is the unique, Richardson Romanesque architectural style, which first made its mark with the construction of this church building (1872-1877). The exterior of Trinity Church has a whimsical architecture quality to it, making use of rough stone, heavy arches, religious figures and a polychromy colour coordination. There are Romanesque, Victorian, Gothic and perhaps even fairytale like characteristics that make for a visually unique viewing of this church. The architecture is peculiar if nothing else. The interior of the church is also impressive featuring beautiful glass stained windows, delicate wood carving pulpit and seating areas, attractive wall murals and gold gilded wall space behind the alter. Unfortunately, we found the lighting to be quite dim within the church, which makes it somewhat difficult to shoot with your camera. It was still very nice to see the interior of Trinity Church, even with the high entry fee. In the end, not sure we would pay again to go into Trinity Church but we would certainly stop by Copley Square again to enjoy the interesting exterior appearance of the building. It is worth a look-see from the outside if you plan to be near Copley Square during your visit to Boston. Those who enjoy church visits will probably want to include this on your sightseeing schedule.

Beautiful church, great Episcopalian service, but most impressively wonderful music. The choir tackles demanding pieces even during the summer. Richard Webster is just sublime as the organist (and choir director) fully exploiting the capabilities of the organ with proper improvised stylistic and tonal transitions throughout the service. Highly recommended.

My favorite church in Boston area. Been here multiple times Sunday morning for the prays, and felt calm and good. Bought books in its stores and were joy to read. Brought friends here to visit as well.
