Because of the impact of the Covid pandemic, the church is currently closed.

The situation will be reviewed every week and any changes will be reflected on the website.

Unfortunately, it has proved impossible to keep the church open for private prayer but, again, this will be subject to review

Please do not make the journey to the church without checking first whether it is open.

The Church of the Most Holy Trinity, Dockhead, is a thriving community with a fascinating past. The present building designed by H. S. Goodhart-Rendel and completed in 1959 (the year of his death) replaces an 1834 gothic church destroyed in the Second World War along with the presbytery and a Pugin-designed convent.  The original church was the first Catholic church since the Reformation to be built fronting a public highway. 

Dockhead has claims to be the oldest mission in the Archdiocese of Southwark, having been established in 1773 in a chapel which was destroyed in the Gordon riots of 1780.

The fact that we celebrate together in a Grade II* Listed Building, however, doesn’t mean we are living in the past – pay us a visit and join us in living our faith in today’s world.
