HOLY TRINITY

The present Church was opened on 26th July 1871. It was built to cope with the changing needs of Llandrindod, which is essentially a Victorian settlement. At the beginning of the 19th century the combined population of the Parishes of Cefnllys and Llandrindod amounted to no more than 500. However the extension of the railway line from Knighton led to the development of extensive building.  

The Church took 2 years to build at a cost of £2457. It was at first dedicated as Christ Church but when it was consecrated on 7 September 1882 it became Holy Trinity.

The original building contained seating for 500 people, but the Church was extended a number of times. These extensions included a baptistry, a vestry for the choir, a new North aisle, extensions to the chancel, construction of the Lady Chapel, as well as the vestries and organ chamber. The seating capacity had been increased from 500 in 1871 to 1400 in 1910. In 1995 a tower was built to accommodate a peal of bells.

As part of the modernisation of the Church, the North aisle has been converted into a Church Centre, the Saint Francis Centre, with catering facilities.
