Located in Sandgate Road, with a 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.Work out when and for how long to visit Holy Trinity Church and other Folkestone attractions using our handy Folkestone itinerary planner.
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.
Holy Trinity maintain strong links with Christ Church Church of England Primary 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 church is a very popular wedding and concert venue with many services and events held throughout the year. Two services recorded by the BBC Songs of Praise series were broadcast for Remembrance 2010 and Palm Sunday 2011.
Most services are led by our choir of girls, boys and men who maintain a cathedral style choral tradition. 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.

Holy Trinity Church is a lovely building and I liked the stained glass windows. I found the atmosphere very calming. You are assured of a warm welcome and you are able to visit for prayers in the mornings and afternoons. There is a choir and they lead the services. The church is a popular place for weddings and other events. There is a hospitality area in the back of the church which serves as a community centre. There is a wheelchair accessible entrance.
