WELCOME TO TRINITY LUTHERAN OF ASTORIA/LONG ISLAND CITY. IF YOU ARE SEEKING A CHURCH HOME, WE SAY TO YOU “WELCOME HOME!” ALL ARE WELCOME HERE AT TRINITY.

We are a vibrant diverse community made up of life-long Lutherans and those who are new to the Christian faith. One will encounter wise seniors and little children in our midst. We are single, partnered, married, widowed, straight, LGBTQ. We are native Astorians and people from around the world. Our worship, theology and life together celebrate the abundance of God’s love, found in the life, teachings, death and resurrection of Jesus!
