Welcome to Holy Trinity Church

Holy Trinity, Southwick is the older church in The Parish of North Wearside, Sunderland. The Parish of North Wearside is a Church of England Parish that sits north of the river Wear and spans from the Stadium of Light across to the A19. We have two Church buildings; Holy Trinity, Southwick, and St Cuthbert's, Redhouse.

Holy Trinity was built in 1842-1845 to the designs of the Architect and Clerk Of Works to Durham Cathedral George L Jackson. It is a Grade II listed building situated on an area of elevated ground overlooking the River Wear to the south, bounded by Northern Way to the west, Church Bank to the south and the former rectory to the north. It is an urban site on the western fringe of Southwick Green.

We are a growing parish with a love of our community and a desire to see those in it thrive. We are an urban parish with a population around 36500, across a number of estates, ranked 391 on the Church of England deprivation statistics.

We seek to be an evolving authentic expression of Church, visible and valued in the local community; accessible to all, led by locally grown and nurtured leaders where we can hold our heritage and tradition alongside contemporary practices and ideas.
