Trinity Parish home page
Trinity Parish is Seattle's Downtown Episcopal Church, located on First Hill, near Seattle's prestigious hospitals, Seattle University, and senior residences.

Welcome to Trinity!  

Our red doors symbolize the spirit of welcome and hospitality that awaits you at Trinity. Come and pay us a visit. This just might become your new spiritual home! We welcome you to be part of our life here in the midst of downtown Seattle.

Trinity is the oldest Episcopal Church in our city, established in 1865 when Seattle had fewer than a thousand residents. But our rich history is only the beginning – we are an active parish community that continues to be a place of spiritual vitality and engagement in the heart of the Downtown and First Hill communities.



We are known as a place of beauty, both architectural and liturgical, as well as beauty experienced through our outstanding visual and musical arts programs. Our lovely 1892 building is on the National Register of Historic Places, and continues to inspire those who walk through its doors. And in addition to our own beautiful worship and music, we are the home for many performing arts groups in the city.

We think you’ll find the beauty of the people who gather here to be just as compelling, because we’re also known as a place of inclusion and loving hospitality, welcoming people from all walks of life. No one should feel like an outsider here, and all are welcomed at the table!

And then there’s all the outreach and mission work we do. We are the home of Northwest Harvest, which resources over 350 food banks around the state, including the Cherry Street Food Bank right here on our campus serving thousands of people each week. Also on our campus is the Trinity Thrift Shop, which is a joint ministry of Trinity Parish and First Baptist of Seattle, serving hundreds of our local neighbors. Our vibrant neighborhood includes Seattle’s finest hospitals, Seattle University, several high-rise retirement communities, public housing neighborhoods, and many other opportunities to serve one another and to welcome people into the life and ministry of this very special parish.

Come and see for yourself! We think you’ll want to be part of what’s happening here!
