Welcome to the web site of Holy Trinity Church, Funchal, Madeira. The church has stood for 185 years and is a vibrant part of life for dozens of British residents on the island and for many thousands of people from all countries of the world. Throughout the year our weekly congregation averages 150, of which some 90% are non-resident: tourists from hotels, timeshare resorts and cruise ships. We like to think that this huge number of worshippers is a tribute to the faith which supports us all, the history, beauty and grandeur of our church and the friendship and fellowship we provide. Our visitors come from many different Christian traditions and all are welcome to share fully in our worship and take communion with us: our church is truly a house of prayer for all people.

This web site is dedicated to those who make - or have yet to make - their visit to our church. We hope you will find the site user-friendly, informative and helpful and we welcome any comments you may have on it.
