Holy Trinity Anglican Church


Clancy & Theys Construction Company provided construction management at Holy Trinity Anglican Church. Located in downtown Raleigh, the 500-seat sanctuary building stands just five blocks north of the State Capitol building and mirrors William Peace University.  A 130-ft steeple seemingly reaches to the heavens and summons congregants to the bustling new church on Peace Street– near some of the oldest neighborhoods, Oakwood and Mordecai, in Raleigh. Though it is all new construction, this church is intended to look as if it has existed in the heart of Raleigh for a hundred years.

The colonial-style church is the first permanent home for the congregation and provides 25,000 sq ft of worship, fellowship, and education space. Outside, the bricks are painted white, and the interior is bright and airy with soaring ceilings and accents of richly stained woodwork and hardwood floors. The sanctuary itself forms the shape of a cross, and massive clear-glass windows fill the worship space with natural light. It features a second-level choir and balcony with an organ. An intimate 50-seat chapel is located in the second level of the tower. A fellowship building bridges the sanctuary and a two-story education building.  The education building provides space for both children and adults, and frames a courtyard gathering space between the two buildings.

Although the site was originally intended for commercial use, Holy Trinity’s presence has impacted the cusp of downtown Raleigh. Further development nearby continues to change the urban fabric of this area,  and in the midst of this evolution having a foundation, a safe haven—so to speak, one that provides ministry partnerships and outreach serving those in need is greatly needed as our community continues to grow.
