School visits

Would your school like to visit our beautiful church to learn more about the history of the building and of Sutton Coldfield? The church has been an important part of the town for over 700 years.

We welcome visits from all Key Stages and are very happy to offer a standard tour of features of the church for any year group.

We are also hoping to link in more detail to the national curriculum to suit your students’ needs, whether around aspects of local history, general history or religious education.

For younger pupils we can be part of topics such as ‘people who help us’, or early exploration of the Christian faith.

Our church is part of the Sutton Town Trail from the Civic Society and we are happy to link with a visit to other landmarks in the town including our neighbouring churches.

Please email us in the first instance if you would like to discuss a visit for the next academic year (Sept 2018 to July 2019) on heritage@htsc.org.uk

If you could also give a phone number for us to call you back on,  this would be helpful.

With both the church offering comfortable facilities as well as our adjacent Trinity Centre, we are able to cater for larger groups now and to offer concurrent activities, depending on your needs.  Much of this is still in early stages, so an email is the best first step to help us work with you appropriately.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Working with schools

Local schools have been getting involved in our Holy Trinity heritage project.

For example, Year 5 pupils from Town Junior School helped Birmingham-based artists, Secret City Arts make 3 films which can be found as follows:

This is the Land – the story of Sutton Coldfield from Roman times to the plague!

Life of Bishop Vesey – how local people reacted to the Charter granted to our town in 1528

Who’s for progress? – the coming of the railway to Sutton in Victorian times.

Higher and further education

Not only will school students benefit from visiting Holy Trinity, those on courses of further and higher education may also wish to look at the unique features of our church, from Bishop Vesey’s tomb to unique woodwork from the era of Mary I, taking in the artwork shown in our stained glass,  memorials and painted ceilings.

Please email us in the first instance if you would like to discuss a visit for the next academic year (Sept 2018 to July 2019) on heritage@htsc.org.uk

If you could also give a phone number for us to call you back on,  this would be helpful.

Using our space

Whatever your student age group, we are keen to see students using our church for drama or other performance arts.
