Church of Holy Trinity (grid reference ST571725) is a church in Hotwells, Bristol, England.

It was built in 1829 by Charles Robert Cockerell with an interior by T Burrough and consecrated on 10 November 1830.

The interior forms a rectangle about 85 by 60 feet (26 by 18 m) and Cockerell used Wren's method of space division based on eight structural columns.[1] The church was completely rebuilt after being gutted during the Bristol Blitz of World War II. Nothing survives of the original cruciform, galleried interior, except the use of a shallow glazed dome.

It has been designated by English Heritage as a grade II* listed building.[2]
