The gift of Poulton Hey by Roger Lancelyn Green to the church was only the start of the story.
Holy Trinity has never conformed to the stereotypical image of a church. This was true right from the beginning, with our Sunday services held within an old house - an intimate meeting place that was perfect for the early congregation. Over the years, numbers continued to grow, which meant that space was becoming a problem.
Various measures were put in place to accommodate the increasing numbers, but it became obvious that the only real solution was to move to a bigger building.
After much careful consideration and prayer, we took the decision to construct a new church building next to the Hey.

Renovating the Hey
The Hey continued to be used by many church and community groups after the new church was built. The building, however was in a poor state, which restricted some of the activies that could take place. The decision was taken to carry out a complete renovation of the building, taking into account that the Hey was a Grade 2 listed building. The cost of this work was again raised through the giving of the congregation.
The pictures on this page show how the church buildings have changed over the past 40 years. But it is the people who make the church; come and join us at any of our services - you’ll be made very welcome!
