Holy Trinity, Forest Green

Website closing soon

As you may be aware, there has been a re-structuring of church parishes recently. As a result this website will soon be closing - don't worry, the churches won't be!

From now on, please visit the Capel & Ockley website for St. Margaret's news, and the Ewhurst with Okewood & Forest Green website for news of St. John's and Holy Trinity.

 

Until the last century there was no permanent place of worship in Forest Green and those wishing to attend church had to be able-bodied and very keen as the nearest churches were several miles away.

Holy Trinity is the youngest of the three churches in the Parish and it was a family tragedy which led to its construction. In 1892, Everard Hensley was killed in a shooting accident at the age of 18. His family was devastated and built the church in his memory. The result was a small brick-built church of striking simplicity and great beauty. It has a light and airy feel with neat proportions and delicate features. Now mellowed into its setting, it is hard to believe that it is only just a little over a hundred years old.
