Holy Trinity Richmond is an Anglican parish church in Sheen Park, Richmond, London.

History[edit]

The church, which is of plain Gothic style and faced with Kentish Ragstone with Bath Stone dressings,[1] was built in 1870; the architect was Raphael Brandon.[2] A tower by Charles Lock Luck (1833/34–90), dating from 1880, was removed in about 1970 [2] for safety reasons.[1]

In the early 1950s a brick-faced halls complex was built on the Sheen Park side of the church.[1] This was replaced in 1992.[1]

Services and activities[edit]

The church holds services, with songs and modern music, on Sunday mornings. Programmes for children and young people run alongside those for adults.[3]

A midweek service is held on Wednesday mornings. It follows Common Worship (the new Anglican liturgy) and alternates between Morning Prayer and Holy Communion.[4]

Collide, the Church's group for 11–18 year olds, meets fortnightly on Saturday evenings.[5] GEMS, the Church's playgroup for pre-school children and parents/carers, meets every Monday morning during term time.[6] Glow, a club for children in school years 4, 5 and 6, is run fortnightly on Friday evenings during term time.[7] Age-related children's groups are also held on Sunday mornings.[8]

A weekly women's group, Oasis, meets on Friday mornings.[9]

Holy Trinity Richmond’s football team plays in Division 3 of the Southern Area Christian Football League (SACFL).[10]
