Parish History[edit | edit source]
The Church Building Act of 1818 provided funds for two new Leicester parishes, one of which was Holy Trinity. The church was built in 1838 to Sydney Smirke's classical design as the city expanded, and formed part of a new suburb. The new parish, also established in 1838, was created out of part of the parish of St Mary de Castro Church. 
Hinckley Holy Trinity is an Ecclesiastical Parish in the county of Leicestershire, created in 1843 from Hinckley, Leicestershire Ancient Parish.
Hinckley St John the Evangelist is part of the parish but records are held at Holy Trinity.
