History

There has been a place of worship at the heart of Meole Brace for over 1,000 years.

The current church building, Holy Trinity, is the fourth we know of on the site and worshipping communities now also meet regularly in Radbrook and on the Meole Estate.

We have produced a short history ‘Meole Brace Through the Centuries’, tracing the story of the church and the parish from Roman times to the present day.  This is available for £5 by post, or online pdf by clicking on the link to the right.

 The present Holy Trinity Church is a fine Grade II listed Victorian building, with nationally famous William Morris and Burne-Jones designed stained glass windows, links to author Mary Webb and a fine peal of bells.  The building is regularly used for services and other events, but visitors are welcome to look around during office hours when the building is not in use.  We can also arrange tours for groups by appointment – contact us for details.  You can also download a booklet with detailed descriptions of the Windows at Holy Trinity, and History of the Bells at Holy Trinity Church Meole Brace

Mary Webb

The renowned local author was a regular worshipper at Holy Trinity and also married at the church.  The church is featured in the local Mary Webb walking trail.

For Schools

The church is a rich resource for study across the curriculum, but particularly for the RE, PSHE and History curricula.  We welcome school visits; please contact us for details.
