Holy Trinity Parish Church

Holy Trinity Church SCThe ancient parish church of Sutton Coldfield, Holy Trinity, is first recorded in the 13th century.

It has had many alterations over the centuries. A tower was added and the nave extended westwards in the 15th century, and around the same time new north and south aisles were added. Extensions to the north and south aisles were made by Bishop Vesey, the town's benefactor, in 1533. Galleries were added and, in some cases taken away again (two remain). The nave roof was raised in 1863 and a new north aisle added in 1879. In 2016 the church underwent an extensive re-ordering which improved access and facilities, but kept the key features of the building intact.Bishop Vesey memorial

Current points of interest for the visitor to Holy Trinity Church include the painted ceilings (Bateman, early 20th century), Bishop Vesey's tomb, unique woodwork originally from Worcester Cathedral and various stained glass windows.

The magnificent Bateman painted ceiling.Please visit the the church website for lots of information about the history of Holy Trinity and images of the building and its contents. There is also a timeline of events over the centuries and interactive floorplans covering the changes seen from the 13th century to the present day. The church is open at certain times for viewing each week - see the church website for details.
