Since being established in Summer 2013, the Friends of Holy Trinity Parish Church has become an intrinsic part of our parish activities. We hope we have also become a key Sutton Coldfield organisation with longevity.
In presenting a programme of inspiring concerts and events, the Friends’ purpose is to provide an accessible way for people to experience the hospitality of our welcoming church community, as well as a regular source of income for the building and fabric of our church. This allows the church’s council (the PCC) to focus on its core objectives of worship, mission, and outreach rather than worrying about our 700 year old building’s bricks and mortar!
With the generosity from over 90 member subscriptions, 14 concerts, 2 Christmas Tree Festivals, 2 corporate sponsors (Dignity plc & CM2000), over £25,000 has been raised to date.
We always aim to provide a massive variety of events. These have ranged from Harp, Male Voice Choirs, String Quartets, Pianists, Mediaeval music, Cathedral Choirs, Musical Theatre companies, Brass Bands, Gospel Choirs through to Poetry & Jazz.
We’re always open to exploring new areas and are very excited to be showcasing three-time Radio 2 Folk Musician of the Year nominee Will Pound & Eddy Jay on Saturday 12th March at 7.30pm – an evening complete with real ale and Morris dancers!
On the 14th May, we’ll be welcoming Drawing Room Opera. And then in early July – for the first time – Intimate Theatre present “The Heiress” which is a great story about rich, naïve girl Catherine and her penniless suitor Morris.
Intrigued? We hope so! Looking forward to seeing you at one of our events or welcoming you as a member soon.
