During the day, people flock to Holy Trinity Church to connect with their spirituality and find answers to their problems. But at night, the church transforms into a warm and inviting space where candlelight and music captivate visitors. Instead of seeking answers, people come to be carried away by the ambience.
Holy Trinity is more than just a place of worship is a relic in Leeds. Ralph Thoresby, the first historian of Leeds, funded the building of Holy Trinity Church in 1714. And, with help from Lady Elizabeth Hastings and other donors, the Grade I building came to life. Whoever, it was Reverend Henry Robinson who laid the foundation stone, an act still remembered today with a monument on the North wall.
The church was designed in the Baroque style making the place the ideal setting for candlelit concerts at night. Its distinctive triangular pediment on the front façade greets everyone seeking transport to another time. But its exterior isn’t the only thing impressive about this building. Head inside, and a spacious nave, 18th and 19th-century glass-stained windows and ornate ceilings will take you aback.
