Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

The site of Holy Trinity church was donated by the Stonefields Charity Estate, and the building was constructed between 1826 and 1829 to designs by Sir Charles Barry. A parish was assigned in 1830, taken from the parish of Saint Mary's, Islington. Parts of the parish were later assigned to other churches: All Saints, Caledonian Road, in 1839; Saint Andrew, Thornhill Square, in 1854 and Saint Thomas, Barnsbury, in 1862. The parish was joined with Saint Andrew's, Thornhill Square, in 1980 and the church was sold to the Celestial Church of Christ.

From: 'Islington: Churches', A History of the County of Middlesex: Volume 8: Islington and Stoke Newington parishes (1985), pp. 88-99.
