Welcome to Holy Trinity Parish Church Sutton Coldfield
The Latest from Holy Trinity
Welcome to Holy Trinity Parish Church.
We are a friendly, open parish church in the heart of Sutton Coldfield where all are made welcome whether you are visiting for the first time or have been coming here for many years.
We welcome people of all ages and at all stages in their Christian faith. Our churchmanship is 'central' and inclusive. Our facilities for children help them to feel part of the Church while allowing parents a space to worship and learn.
I hope you enjoy browsing our website, and look forward to seeing you at one of our services.

Christmas as a child. I remember it so well ... the anticipation which built up through December as Christmas Day drew nearer. Writing cards, school concerts, putting up the tree, wrapping presents, and then ... finally ... the day arrives! At Holy Trinity we wait for the coming of Christmas in much the same way. And it retains its excitement for all of us whether children or adults.
First, from 5th to 7th Dec, comes the Christmas Tree Festival ... groups from church and from the wider community decorate the church with their trees; and in the midst there is a concert at 7.30pm on Saturday and our Christingle Service at 4.00pm on Sunday.
Sutton's reconfirmed Royal status was celebrated at our Royal Town Gala Concert on Saturday 17 November. Local dignitaries came together at the first Friends event of our second season to see internationally acclaimed acts perform.
Birmingham radio legend Les Ross MBE hosted the event, with the accomplished BMOS Musical Theatre Company performing show tunes from musicals including South Pacific and Carousel. Classical pianist and Director of the BCU International Piano Academy Di Xiao presented a demanding programme that included Debussy and Schubert and Birmingham-based strings ensemble Enigma similarly delighted us with a varied range of pieces.

We are asking what you think we should be doing for the community?
Part of the role of a parish church is to serve the needs of the wider community. At Holy Trinity we try hard to do that - we provide a place for community groups to meet, we support the Baptist Church food bank, we visit those who are seriously ill when we're asked to.
We've been giving some thought to what else we should do. And we've decided that, rather than deciding for ourselves and ending up doing something which nobody really wants, we should first ask everyone in the parish what you think is needed.
We're not a huge congregation (if only we were!), and our resources of time and finance are limited. That limits what we could take on, so we can't promise to do what you suggest. But we are interested to know, and we promise to consider any genuine ideas prayerfully and respectfully.
So we're asking for your input. If there is one thing that the people of Holy Trinity could do to help the wider community, what do you think it should be? Send your suggestions to the parish office on the form below.
