Many of us walk along Lichfield Road or Morgan Street and cast a gaze at the rather imposing bulk of the Holy Trinity Church. In Winter we ignore it, and hurriedly shuffle passed, head down en route to the tube; or perhaps the Lord Tredegar Quiz Night? At dusk, we may spot a fox slipping through the fencing with a KFC takeaway to be enjoyed, undisturbed, in the graveyard. In Spring no doubt the fox is still there but lies hidden by the long stems of the cow parsley with its soft aniseed-like fragrance.

THIS SUNDAY from 1-5PM, for the first time in 30 years, there is a chance to step inside Holy Trinity. Not only can you marvel at the architecture of this Grade-II listed building, but you can enjoy a delightful art exhibition "Gathered Relics" organised by Stepney Green resident and architect Julian McIntosh where items of significant architectural interest will be on display in the church revealing the buildings unique history.
