Holy Trinity is part of a blessed and noble heritage. Founded as St. Barnabas in 1871, and established as Holy Trinity in 1910, our Church has been and continues to be a dynamic presence and a powerful witness to Christ in our city, our diocese and beyond. The generations before us provided us with a beautiful church and a campus spanning almost an entire city block in an increasingly vibrant downtown neighborhood. They did their part in their generation, as they were called by God to do.
Our last capital campaign was over 25 years ago, so now it is our time, in this generation, to hear God’s call for us and do our part to update and develop our church to serve us both in the present and for future generations to come. We are calling this initiative, “Generation to Generation” with the awareness that since 1871 when this congregation was initially formed, previous generations have each stepped up, in turn with vision, spiritual commitment and faithful giving to establish and develop the Holy Trinity that we know and love as our spiritual home.
Now it’s our generation’s turn to step up with vision and faithful giving.
Capital Gifts Initiative, Generation to Generation: Project List
Project Budget: $6,500,000
The Vestry and the Block Design Committee have approved the following project list for the Capital Gifts Initiative to thoroughly update and improve our existing space. The initiative will update and upgrade our Parish House, unify our block, provide the maximum number of parking spaces our block will accommodate and add new covered outdoor gathering spaces. The comprehensive list of project activities includes:
- Updating and upgrading our Parish House and existing facilities: The campaign will address significant cosmetic and energy efficient improvements including lighting, flooring, audiovisual and technological capacity. We will add a sprinkler system for our Day School/Sunday School spaces to address safety codes. The Haywood Duke room will receive a much needed facelift, including significantly improved restroom spaces.
- Unifying the appearance of our block and addressing parking: We will add as much parking as the block will allow, add landscaping, and give our block a more unified community feel. We have recently purchased a lot on Simpson Street to allow for an additional 50 parking spaces, as well as space for our youth ministry.
- Creating new covered outdoor gathering spaces: We will be adding beautiful outdoor spaces for fellowship and celebration. A covered entrance consistent with the look of the church will provide a covered space to compensate for our unusually small narthex. In addition, a beautiful connected covered terrace space will be added to the back of the Haywood Duke room, with an outdoor fireplace and seating for 175-200.
