The Church of the Holy Trinity with St Edmund (grid reference ST593766) is a church on Wellington Hill, Horfield in Bristol, England.

The west tower dates from the 15th century. The nave and aisles by William Butterfield date from 1847, and the chancel and crossing tower are dated 1893. The transepts were added in 1913 and 1929.

It has been designated by English Heritage as a grade II* listed building.[1]

In 1877 the graveyard became the resting place of Newport Chartist John Frost. Although Frost's grave site was lost for many years, in the 1980s a new headstone was created and re-erected on the site, with the aid of a grant from Newport City Council. The new headstone was unveiled by Neil Kinnock.[2][3] There are also war graves of 17 British and two Canadian service personnel of World War I, and a Royal Navy sailor of World War II.[4]
