UPCOMING EVENTS


HISTORY

Holy Trinity  was built as a Chapel of Ease in 1829 to serve the needs of those persons living  great distances from the St. Philip Parish Church.  It was consecrated on November 25, 1830.

The Church was destroyed by the hurricane of 1831.  It was rebuilt and re-dedicated on December 9, 1832.  The construction of the new structure which is built in the shape of a cross, together with a new Public School was financed with funds made available by the Lord Bishop of Barbados.

With the passing years, other additions were made to the Church.  In 1844, the gallery to the west end was constructed.  In 1884, the Belfry was erected and in 1905 an Apse and Organ Chamber were added.  In 1906, the Baptismal Font with its winged angels, carved from coral stone, was given by Miss F. Burton of Staple Grove, Christ Church.  It stands at the west end of the Church.

In 1981,  the old pipe organ was replaced with a new Allen Organ.  In 1983, the wooden floor in the main section of the building was replaced with a concrete floor.

Between 1991 and 1992, a ramp was added to the access at the northern door of the building and hand rails installed at the west door for the benefit of the physically challenged.  In 1992 a new office block was built adjoining the northern wing of the Church and washroom facilities refurbished and expanded.
