In 2017/2018 thanks to Heritage Lottery Fund, Historic England, Bristol City Council and 13 other funders, as well as generous donations from members of the public we were able to undertake critical repairs to the fabric of the building. Conservation programme included repairs to lead-work on the North aisle roof to prevent water ingress repair of stonework, pinnacles and iconic towers to protect the building's fabric restoration of original stained glass and secondary glazing to improve sustainability.

2012 saw the installation of solar PV installation and technical equipment. In 2013, through the Big Lottery Reaching Communities Buildings and thanks to to National Lottery funding and match funders, we invested in the redevelopment of our upstairs hall space. This included installation of multi-purpose lighting, sprung wooden floor and heating to increase availability of quality dance, performance and community space in the area We also made significant improvements to the external grounds, with better signage and layout to improve accessibility.  Alongisde these works the  2013 Trinity Centre Conservation Project saw the repairs to the South Aisle roof (2013) - taking Trinity off Historic England’s ‘At Risk’ Register.
