Creating Space to Transform Lives

The visionary Transform project to "create space to transform lives that change the world" is nearing completion with the modernisation of Holy Trinity Church and the construction of an entirely new building (The Charles Simeon Centre) alongside the church. 

The project now moves into its final phases as the building work is completed and we return to worship at the new look church. We are making a "phased return"; moving into the different buildings as they become ready.

Phase  1: Preview  Sunday -  We  worship  at  Holy  Trinity  Church,  Market  Street  on  October  1st

On Sunday 1st  October we will worship together in the church for the first time in over a year. The whole place is now light, bright and warm. The very first Sunday should be viewed as a "preview Sunday" as some of the fine-tuning might well be a work in progress but thanks to the hard work, dedication, and skill of the people working on the site, we are looking forward to moving back and worshiping together.

Phase  2:  Charles  Simeon  Centre  becomes  fully  operational

The new building, the Charles Simeon Centre, is very near to completion and we expect to be able to use the rooms by the middle of October. 

Phase 3: Henry  Martyn  Hall  revamp

Work will be started to refurbish the HMH and will be completed in early 2018. Once complete, we will fulfill all three phases of our move back to Market Street.
