Welcoming visitors and sharing the story of Trinity Church past, present, and future is at the heart of our Visitor Programs. It includes telling the story of our historic building and its fine arts elements, the history of the parish, and reinforcing the message that Trinity is home to a thriving congregation today. All net proceeds from tours and The Shop at Trinity help fund the conservation and maintenance of the building, as well as parish ministries.
If you've ever wanted to know more about Trinity, if you're a visitor from out-of-town looking to see the sights, or if you live around Boston but have just never been inside this architectural gem, please join us for a tour. Our tour guides bring the story of Trinity alive, ensure a warm welcome for guests, and help visitors get better acquainted with the building.
A free tour is offered every Sunday directly following the 10:00 am summer worship service, and meets in front of the Eagle Lectern immediately after the service has concluded. Additionally, guided tours are offered on a daily basis. The cost is $7 per person and includes our award-winning map. Children under 16 are free with an accompanying adult, and we are pleased to offer students and seniors with valid ID a discounted tour rate of $5 per person. Tours begin in The Trinity Book Shop and are led by trained tour guides. Tour times vary, so please contact us, 617.536.0944 x225 in advance to find out when you can drop in for a guided tour.

A Place for Prayer
We do not ask those arriving at Trinity as a spiritual sanctuary for prayer or meditation to pay the entry fee. Trinity Church is sacred space. We ask that all who visit help preserve the sanctity of the church; as part of this we request that men please remove hats, and that no food or drink are consumed in the church. Please do not leave your personal belongings unattended.
