Holy Trinity Church Brathay

 

A warm welcome to Holy Trinity Church Brathay

 Because of rugged and limited area at the top of the hill, the church had to be orientated North/South instead of the customary East/West but the churchyard burials are correctly orientated. On October 1st 1836 the church was consecrated by the Bishop of Chester.

Early in 1883 the popular wedding hymn ‘O perfect love’ was sung here for the first time – using the music from ‘Strength and Stay’. The words were changed by Dorothy F Gurney on the occasion of the marriage of her sister.

If you relish the Book of Common Prayer, thought provoking preaching and marvellous woodland surroundings then this is the church for you! A friendly rural church where you will be made most welcome

Ample parking but we regret that toilet facilities are not accessible for the time being.
