History

Holy Trinity Clapham opened for worship in 1776. The church is most famously associated with William Wilberforce and the group of friends known to history as “the Clapham Sect”. They lived around Clapham Common and worshipped in this church as they campaigned for the abolition of the slave trade and the spiritual and moral reformation of the nation. We look back with great thankfulness and wonder for all that has taken place in and through Holy Trinity. However, we also look outwards and forwards to what God is doing and will do through us today.

For more detail on the history of the building, the Clapham Sect and how to access church records there is further information provided here. Alternatively you can contact us with any enquiries you may have, we would love to help.
