The Holy Trinity Garrison Church
Windsor, Berkshire, England
The Church was built on the express order of Queen Victoria in 1842 for her troops garrisoned in Windsor, so in this 170th anniversary year we are asking all of the Association’s members to help support the continued success of the Church. The Garrison Church receives no money or grants from the Crown, the Army, the Regiments, the Division, the Government or from the Church Of England. It has to be entirely self supporting.
For the first time in its history, the church's doors will be permanently open so that visitors and soldiers; past and present, will have the opportunity to view the historic contents of this unique and important building in the life of Windsor and its soldiers. To do this we have launched a ‘Friends’ Organisation which has the endorsement of the Division.
The Friends help fund important projects in the Church, and rely entirely on subscriptions, donations, bequests and events to fulfil our objectives. The scale of the projects we support depends on a continuous response by the Friends - we must find new members to support this work.
Their latest newsletter "The Trinitarian" is available here for downloading if you so wish which contains a membership application form to help support this worthy cause.
Additionally in this year, the centenary of the outbreak of World War 1, the Garrison’s Memorial Concert will take place on Sunday 28th September as part of the Windsor Festival and will feature the Band of the Blues and Royals. This concert is particularly poignant as the church contains the only complete Household Division WW1 memorial. HRH Prince Edward, the Earl of Wessex will be in attendance and will be recorded by Classic FM for national UK radio transmission at a later date.
