Why now

saveHoly Trinity is at severe risk and investment is needed now to ensure the historic fabric is not permanently lost. The project has been shaped through consultation with the local community who want to see Holy Trinity open regularly, and it has also come at a time of change for the arts, heritage, museums and libraries offer in Sunderland.

save2There is ambitious cultural investment across the City including the Cultural Spring initiative, the Tall Ships Race in 2018, major investment in the MAC Trust Cultural Quarter, a bid to become UK City of Culture 2021. We want The Canny Space to capitalise on and be part of these opportunities.

The £3.6 million project will transform Holy Trinity. We have received generous support from funders including the City Council but £554,000 is needed to enable a stage two Heritage Lottery Fund application in December 2016. Subject to funding The Canny Space will open in 2019, celebrating the 300th anniversary of Holy Trinity with a spectacular launch.


"Working with The Churches Conservation Trust is fantastic; their work to care for and conserve these
historic churches means a whole new generation gets to experience their beauty through heritage, music and collaboration."

Dave Stewart, musician and producer


The Canny Space is the working project name for Holy Trinity Church, Church Street East, Sunderland, Tyne & Wear, SR1 2BB.
