Holy Trinity Episcopal Church
Washington Heights / Inwood
In 1927, after much discussion, Holy Trinity agreed to merge with a small but dynamic mission church in Inwood, called Holy Redeemer at Seaman Avenue and Isham. The simple wood frame church of Holy Redeemer stood where the tennis courts of Inwood Hill Park now stand. Financially there was a merger, however most parishioners came from the Holy Redeemer Parish. There was a generous sale of the old Harlem church location, and new land was purchased on the corner of Cumming and Seaman Avenue. The location is conveniently one block from Dyckman (200th Street) and Broadway. Ambitious plans were made for the new Cumming Street location. Then the stock market crashed. Plans were suspended, and the parish moved forward with only the lower portion of the planned sanctuary and a community house. The upper sanctuary and rectory were never constructed.
We have a thriving children's theatre group, concert series, mini-gallery, a food pantry and a delightful coffee hour (for which Anglicans are well known).
Please feel free to drop by for any of our services. You will immediately feel welcomed like you're visiting an old country church.
