Parish Profile

HOLY TRINITY, MINCHINHAMPTON is at the heart of the town, dominating its Market Place. The tower and transepts date from the 14th century, the remainder being extensively rebuilt in the 19th century. Phase One of a major re-ordering project has just been completed, removing the pews and installing under-floor heatingP1020872 beneath a new stone floor, thus making the Church more flexible for creative acts of worship, concerts, fund raising events and a wide variety of other activities. Up to 350 people can be seated. Funds have been raised to develop the porch and work will start on this shortly.

As soon as this work is complete we shall be looking to rebuild our renowned organ (led by the Director of Music who we are seeking to appoint), and also to repair our windows. A substantial amount of money towards this has already been raised.

We enjoy a good variety of inclusive and diverse worship, including liturgy from Common Worship and The Book of Common Prayer – however at our core is traditional choral worship.

Regular services include Sunday morning sung eucharist, and twice-monthly Choral Evensong. Our vision expresses our hope and prayer that those who come to worship with us will have both an experience of the living God and a welcome from others.

We enjoy joining with the other churches in our benefice (in Amberley and Box) for special services such as Trinity Sunday and Harvest, when our choirs and congregations come together for joint celebrations.

The organ is originally an 1887 instrument built by Nicholson and Lord of Walsall. Subsequent work was completed by Hill, Norman and Beard, John Coulson, Roger Newton and Roger Taylor. Details may be found here
