Holy Trinity Church, Church Street East, Sunderland, Tyne and Wear SR1 2BB View on map

Holy Trinity Church is located in the East End of Sunderland. It is one of only two Grade I early Georgian churches in the North East and was built in 1719 as a result of a petition by local merchants who wanted a new church to accommodate the growing merchant and shipping class. It was used not only for public worship but also civic justice as the ground floor Vestry room served as the Council Chamber and Magistrate's Court. It is also the site of Sunderland's first public library and home of the fire service.
