One step closer to protecting future

We're launching a campaign to raise the funds to secure Trinity's past, future and present

“We are pleased to continue to support the Trinity Centre in its project to repair the historic fabric of this Grade II* listed building which was a former church. This additional grant will enable the conservation of further stonework and the windows. These works will help transform the appearance of the Trinity Centre which is a significant landmark in both Old Market and Bristol.” Sarah Ball, Heritage at Risk Architect at Historic England in the South West

Having already supported us with a grant of £106k, Historic England have pledged a further £68k uplift grant towards our urgent conversation works. Significant historic damage to the building’s fabric - including corroded iron works and damage to the stained glass windows - was uncovered as part of recent investigations carried out on the 19th-Century Grade II** listed building - leading to fears that Trinity Centre could one day face closure if not addressed.

"When we announced the news earlier this year we were overwhelmed by the messages of support, generous offers and donations from the community. Funding from Historic England means we are one step closer to our £200k fundraising goal - we are very grateful for this support.” Emma Harvey, Centre Director.

We have launched a fundraising campaign to raise another £135k to cover the full cost of the planned programme of works - which includes sustainability measures to reduce running costs - before the scaffolding is planned to come down in the Autumn. Running from March - October we have an an exciting program of fundraising activities - including our famous annual garden party, 13th May.
