Holy Trinity, located in the town centre of Aldershot, is an evangelical church that aims to be both Word and Spirit centred. It is one of four Anglican churches serving mainly the civilian population of a very diverse town. Both the church and the parish are in the top three most deprived in Guildford Diocese. In the 2011 census the population of the parish of Holy Trinity was just over 10,000, but the church draws most of its congregation from outside the parish, although over 70% are from within Aldershot.
A significant part of the parish covers the garrison area including two of the largest garrison churches (but several Army families do attend HT). About half of this area is now being redeveloped into new housing with about 3,500 houses planned. At this time about 300 are occupied and the number should be around 1,000 by the end of 2018. This area is called Wellesley and we are a significant part of the ecumenical church plant, Wellspring, that appointed a Pioneer Minister, Jackie Maw, to head this up with a small seed team about a year ago.
There are 182 adults on the Electoral Roll (April 2017). Under the present vicar, the number on the roll has increased gradually by around 50% in 18 years but with some fluctuations, and Sunday attendance has roughly doubled.
The average attendance at Sunday services is around 140 adults and 20 children.
