Besides the stunning old building, this Anglican Church has much history from early Sydney settlement, being the church the soldiers garrison nearby attended each Sunday. Today the services are of the modern Anglican style, delivered by a lovely, friendly minister in Craig Tubman, where sermons are gospel based and not of a random topic as of old. Reverand Tubman is... More

I was walking around The Rocks this morning and came across this church which was open. Lovely architecture and an impressive internal structure albeit a simple one. Worth a visit for some quiet reflection when the church is not in use.

It's a beautiful historic Church in the old centre of town. Worth a quick drop by if in the area but don't go out of your way.

I wouldn't go out of my way to see it, but if you're in the area then it's maybe worth a look over I guess... It's historic, but it's not St. Peter's Basilica... Check it out if you want to.

An Early Part of Colonial History I attended a music concert here and was surprised how large the building is. This was a military church for the marines and is now a parish church in Sydney. The concert was amazing. The setting was great and the building a great example of early colonial architecture.

I lived in Lower Fort Street, where the church is located, for 15 years. The church is on the corner of Argyle Street and and easily accessible from the bus terminus (431/433 from Glebe and Balmain which runs down George St Sydney). It was built when Sydney was still a colony run by a garrison of soldiers. It is a... More

Garrison Church lacked the decoration of some other church. The simple design was rich with arched windows and decorated turrets, but in a simple, understated way. Most notable was the Sydney Harbour Bridge in the background. With a wedding taking place, I couldn’t go inside, but the Garrison Church seems to be a nice highlight to the Millers Point area.

The Holy Trinity Anglican Church is more commonly referred to as the Garrison Church which reflect that it was once used as a church of worship for the many regiments that worshipped there. Made of beautiful sandstone blocks and polished wood interior, the Church has lovely stained glass windows which catch the light beautifully. There's various military memorabilia in the... More
