Located in Sandgate Road, with a potential view of France from the top of the unusual octagonal tower, Holy Trinity Church has a commanding position in the town of Folkestone. At Holy Trinity Church you will be greeted by a committed and welcoming congregation and you will enjoy a superb choir. Our services tend towards the traditional and include a strong element of prayer. We encourage everyone to develop a prayer routine through training and guidance, with occasional quiet days, prayer days and weeks of guided prayer. This has noticeably permeated our worship and gives us a strong foundation for future mission.An active network of home groups supports Bible study.We have a strong ministry of healing and wholeness, with a dedicated monthly service. Private prayer and the Laying on of Hands is regularly included within Sunday services.

We have a small hospitality area at the back of the church and an adjacent hall which is used every day. When not used for church purposes, it serves as a community centre for many local organisations. Every Saturday afternoon we serve afternoon tea, even spilling out onto the lawn in the summer. Once a month this is followed by Tea and Talk, while Lunch on Friday follows a service of Holy Communion.
 
 
Holy Trinity maintain strong links with Christ Church CEP Academy, which holds significant services in Holy Trinity; many choir members have been recruited from the school over the years. Folkestone School for Girls holds its Christmas service in the church and some of our members have long-term involvement in the leadership of local uniformed organisations who use our hall and attend Parade Services in the church.
 
 
The three-manual Walker organ was restored in 2016 and is one of the finest parish church organs in the south-east.

The choir, affiliated to the Royal School of Church Music, nurtures its younger members and offers Organ and Choral Scholarships funded by the “Friends of the Music”.

 

In the summer they regularly take their music to cathedrals all over the country and music is very much part of our outreach, with concerts throughout the year and an annual series of summer organ recitals.
