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.
