Holy Trinity Parish Church
set in the heart of Winchester
the seat of The Diocese of Winchester
The Future is looking Rosy
Looking backwards and forwards.
Holy Trinity was built over one hundred and sixty years ago to provide a place of worship in a town with a growing population where market gardens had been replaced by terraced houses for local workers.
At that time across the country churches were built with an emphasis on beauty of holiness in worship together with social outreach for the local area. Something we still need to do today.
Although the demography of the parish is now very different, with a number of student lodgings and care homes, more young families are beginning to move into the area.
These numbers are set to rise with the development of the old fire station
Holy Trinity is committed to maintaining and developing its mission and ministry in this fast changing and exciting area of the city.
Our parish extends from the High St across to Northwalls and from Eastgate st. upto the station.
Much of our parish is commercial with many shops and offices so we rely on a small local residency plus many worshippers comig to us from outside the parish. The reason we have many from outside our boundaries is our services and the form of worship we all enjoy.
We use a very traditional form of worship that many churches have long abandoned but which is very popular with many. Do come along and see for yourself.
A really joyful day at Holy Trinity The Candlemass procession.
