Trinity Lutheran Church is a historic Lutheran church at 31-18 37th Street in Astoria, Queens, New York. It was designed by John William Cresswell Corbusier and overseen by noted architect George W. Conable (1866-1933). It was built in 1926 and is a one story Collegiate Gothic style building. It is constructed of brick faced with coursed rubble aplite trimmed in cast stone. The front elevation features a recessed entry with a large window above, framed by two spires with ornate turrets. The interior is in a Gothic plan of nave and transepts.[2] The church owns a 1927 Skinner pipe organ, which is still operational and used during Sunday services.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2008.[1]
