Holy Trinity Church is the people much more than the building. Together we are …
- people of all ages who enjoy living as close to Jesus as we can,
- a community that doesn’t stand on ceremony and enjoys informality, children, teens, adults and elderly and work hard to look after each other,
- people who believe that Jesus makes sense of life and that following him makes life more fun than trying to go-it-alone,
- an ecumenical partnership, with links to the Anglican, Methodist, but meeting and working as a single community
- located in Bradley Stoke, a couple of minutes from the M4-M5 Almondsbury intersection.
Our history and future
Bradley Stoke started appearing on the map in the 1970s, and early in the building phase a group of Christians started meeting in a blue portacabin, affectionately known as the Blue Hut. The church was established as an ‘ecumenical partnership’, in which the Anglican, Methodist and United Reformed churches set up a shared venture. The new building including a 210 place Primary School was fully opened in 1994.
The houses and population grew to over 28,000, during this time the Anglican church also set up Christ the King church towards the Parkway/Little Stoke end of the town.
Now that Bradley Stoke is established, the Anglican church has redrawn its boundaries as the previous boundaries existed that when the area was farmed fields no longer made sense.
In 2014 Rev Paul Hinckley moved to the area with the role of helping to create a new, single parish of Bradley Stoke, and over the next couple of years, Holy Trinity Church and Christ the King started to work together within that parish. Rev Paul Hinckley has now moved to a new parish and we have been joined by Rev Rod Symmons as our Interim Minister
