Administrative/Biographical history:

Holy Trinity, Paddington was established in 1846. In 1947, the parish of Saint Paul, Harrow Road (P87/PAU) was united with Holy Trinity, becoming known as Holy Trinity with Saint Paul's, Paddington. The parish church on Bishop's Bridge Road (formerly Bishop's Road) was closed in 1971 because it had become unsafe and was then demolished in the 1980's. Worship continued during that period in the community hall. Holy Trinity was amalgamated with Saint James, Sussex Gardens (P87/JS) in March 1981 to form the larger parish of Saint James, Paddington.
