A key feature of every rural town and village is its church. Bradford-on-Avon is no exception with the Parish Church of Holy Trinity, a beautiful 12th century church nestled by the banks of the River Avon, serving a lively and active congregation. In order to preserve this wonderful building and to take the opportunity to build on its role in the centre of the town, Holy Trinity is moving to create a vibrant, active space that will offer a modern, "open door" approach to the whole community of Bradford-on-Avon.
a raised new stone floor incorporating an under-floor heating system
new furniture and seating to provide flexibility for multiple and community use
restoration of the organ, monuments and glass
water integrity of the roof and walls
flood prevention and resilience
tower meeting room, kitchen pod, toilets, secure office space
lighting, security, improved sound system
and improved welcoming approaches.
Some images showing the plans are on the "New Look" page.
Of course, all of the plans and ideas will cost money to complete and so Holy Trinity has launched a fundraising effort - its Big Community Connection (BCC) - to help ensure these all come to fruition. The church has already raised some £1.3 million pounds towards the scheme but still needs to raise additional funds through grants and £100,000 through the BCC . The Fundraising Committee has set itself the challenge of raising that sum by December 2016 and over the next 18 months an exciting series of events and activities will be held in order to meet that target. Details of all activities will be publicised on this website, around the town and through social media.
