Parish History

Holy Trinity was built in response to St Bride, Fleet Street's need for a sister church to serve its growing population. Situated in Pemberton Row the social reformer Charles Booth noted it served the area's poorer citizens . As the century wore on legislation was passed to reduce the number of City churches and after a short, but worthy, existence the then Bishop of London authorised the reunification of the two parishes, the proceeds from the sale going towards the building of St Mellitus, Hanwell.
