Cemeteries

This Church has (or had) a graveyard.

Note: any church within an urban environment may have had its graveyard closed after the Burial Act of 1853. Any new church built after that is unlikely to have had a graveyard at all.

Church History

This Place of Worship was founded in 1821, and we understand it is still open.

Kelly's Directory of 1923 records that a civil parish of Kingswood was formed in 1900, from the parish of Bitton. It then belonged to the Thornbury division of the county, Langley upper hundred, union of Keynsham, Out-relief union of Warmley, and county court district of Bristol, petty sessional division of Lawford's Gate, rural deanery of Bitton, and archdeaconry and diocese of Bristol. With so many authorities to answer to, this must have led to all sorts of administrative issues!

An ecclesiastical parish of Kingswood had been formed nearly 100 years earlier, in 1821, the same year the church was built. Kelly describes Holy Trinity as "a building of stone in the Early English style, consisting of chancel, nave, north porch and a western tower, with pinnacles, 90 feet in height, containing a clock and 2 bells". The creation of the civil parish was contemporous with the reopening of the church by the Bishop of Bristol on 2nd April 1900, following the addition of a new chancel, and organ chamber to the church, which was also re-floored, reseated and relighted at that time.

The British Listed Buildings website describes the church as "Commissioners Gothic", with a Roman tile roof, and four bays of "Tudor Gothick". It also mentions a Tudor arch around the west door, which is studded.

Denomination

Now or formerly Church of England.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.
