Welcome to the Church of England parish of Winchester City centre. We are a diverse all age community of people seeking to love God, serve our town and grow in faith across our communities.

We are always looking for ways to reach out and one of our new initiatives is to offer 'a collect for church' scheme.

Where ; if you are unable to get to church we try to find someone who is coming to church to collect you and take you home again.

Equally so if you are willing to offer a lift we need to know?

 

If you want a lift or can offer one

either fill in the form or call John on 07921362440

We are a Forward in Faith Church and support the Society of St Wilfrid & St Hilda in upholding and expressing the Catholic faith in the Church of England.

 

We encourage men and women of all ages who value that inheritance to join us.

 

We value tradition but are forward-looking.

 

We hold fast to the faith once delivered to the saints and received by the Universal Church while reaching out to other Christians of differing convictions and seeking ways of mutual cooperation wherever they may be found.

 

 

The roof is highly decorated.

The roof cladding of the two chapels is decorated in oblongs containing various motifs including the sac red monogram IHS (Iesus Hominem Salvator ).

 

In addition to the roof some of the pillars and most of the walls were painted and the walls of the aisles were covered with Joseph A Pippet's late C19 stations of the cross.

On the walls of the North and South aisles were painted the Stations of the Cross.

Sadly as they began to flake off from being painted on a soft limestone it was deemed correct to paint them out altogether.

The only saving grace was the fact that a set of black and white photographs were taken to record their beauty for ever.

 

 

Now you too can enjoy them here on this page below are the fourteen scrolling pictures depicting the Stations of the Cross painted on the walls of Holy Trinity Winchester by Joseph A.Pippet
