Holy Trinity Anglican Church is in the northern Tasmanian city of Launceston. The church was designed by local architect Alexander North and consecrated in 1902. The brick building is in the Gothic Revival style and features numerous relief sculptures around the exterior of the church. These include foliage, grotesque winged creatures, and a lion holding a heraldic shield.

Holy Trinity has represented the more traditional Anglo-Catholic style of the Anglican Church within Launceston. As such Holy Trinity has maintained a via media approach to worship within the Anglican Church tradition, worshipping God through proclaiming the gospel and administering the means of Grace through liturgical, missional , doctoral and pastoral ministry.

Holy Trinity is a city church, addressing the spiritual needs of the CBD. Holy Trinity's outreach transcends its formal parish boundary and the congregation is drawn by its pastoral care as well as family connections. Its Anglo-Catholic nature is embodied in its worship style, music and celebration of the sacraments. The provision of weekday Eucharists and quiet times of prayer are also a feature of Holy Trinity.

This post is part of the Psalm Sunday meme,
and also part of the Spiritual Sunday meme.

And here is Teresa Berganza singing Antonio Vivaldi's "Longe Mala Umbrae Terrores".


  1. I don't want to be neither disruptive nor rude, Nick, but are you sure you understand the point of the psalm challenge ? It could be interesting to see your reading of the psalm verse studied each sunday, event if your picture of church are indeed gorgeous.

  2. In my opinion, these are very suited. The night pictures provide a strong contrast to the darkness, making it a 'light' within.
    Interesting to see the nearly totally different mood at the days image.
    I thank you very much for your kind participation Nick !
    Please have a good start into the new week.

  3. Great night shots! I am not any good in night captures.

  4. Thanks for the words about this impressive church. I went off to read about the meaning of your via media.


I love to hear from you, so please comment. I appreciate constructive criticism as it improves my skills as an amateur photographer.
