Sacred Trinity are a welcoming congregation worshipping in a small but lovely building with lots of historic interest. Sacred Trinity was the first church in Salford but is right next to Manchester city centre and we relate to both the city centre and the rest of Salford. The building is also host to a variety of different groups.

Brief history of the building.
Sacred Trinity church was originally built as a chapel-of-ease to serve the growing population of Salford in 1635. Most of the current building dates from 1752. It is a 2* listed building with many original features. It was restored in 1877-74 and adapted for more flexible use in the 1980’s.
Sir Humphrey Booth raised the money for the original church. His grandson, also Humphrey Booth, set up a trust to maintain the church and help the ‘poor of Salford’. The Humphrey Booth Trust is still doing its good work.
Amongst many claims to fame for Sacred Trinity is that William Webb Ellis was Christened there. Webb Ellis is famed for inventing the game of Rugby by running with the ball in 1823 whilst at Rugby School. He's pictured below from 1854 whilst Rector of St Clement's, Danes in London.
We have had many concerts here over the years by people as varied as Laura Marling, Everything Everything, Marina & the Diamonds, Nancy Elizabeth, Homelife, Denis Jones, Alasdair Roberts and many more. To see what's coming up, go to the Concerts page.
