About This Book

For the first time in its 750-year existence, a full history of Holy Trinity is available to the general public. One of only a small number of parish churches to be Grade I listed, Holy Trinity displays its rich heritage through stained glass, memorials, unique woodwork and glorious painted ceilings. It also houses the tomb of Sutton Coldfield’s most famous son, John Vesey, Bishop of Exeter, whose work for the benefit of both church and town, with the blessing of King Henry VIII, continues to earn him the respect of the local community in every generation. Funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund in 2017-19 has enabled this book to be researched and written. The timing of its publication enables the history to be as up-to-date as possible, following on from a major reordering of the church interior to create a space for church and community fit for the 21st century.
