Holy Trinity Parish Church is the parish church of Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham, England.[1] It is Grade I listed[2] and gives its name to the ward in which it stands, Sutton Trinity.

The earliest part of the building, the west tower, dates from the late 15th century.[2]

Memorial dedicated to Bishop John Vesey, in Vesey Gardens, located to the side of Holy Trinity Church

Inside the church are the tomb of Bishop Vesey,[3] as well as a font, acquired in the 19th century from the Church of St Lawrence, Over Winacre, Nottinghamshire.[2] The ornate, early 17th century screens and panelling, fitted in 1875, were removed from the choir and organ casing of Worcester Cathedral in 1864.[2]

Formerly in the mediaeval Diocese of Lichfield, the church now operates within the Diocese of Birmingham.[4]

The "Friends of Holy Trinity Parish Church" was established in September 2013 to raise funds for the church. The inaugural Patron was Andrew Mitchell MP. Their first scheduled event in November 2013 was the Royal Town Gala Concert, hosted by Don Maclean.[5]
