Holy Trinity Church
Pay a visit to the quaint little place of worship, Sliema’s Holy Trinity Church. Found on Rodolphe Street in the heart of Sliema, it’s a pleasant way to spend an hour or so.
Built in the second half of the 19th century, as an Anglican place of worship, it’s similar in style to the village churches you’ll see back in the UK. The high pitched roof will catch your eye and pull your gaze upwards as you approach the church.
The church is open each day from 9am to 5pm, so it can be a nice place to escape the sun in the
hottest part of the day.
There are pamphlets near the front door which you can read to learn about the church’s history and how Anglicanism started in Malta. You might even see banners with details of special events on the fence outside, as there are regular fundraisers like bake sales.
If you want to have a moment of quiet reflection, then take a seat on one of the wooden pews and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. Gaze up at the high ceiling, and watch the sun light up the stained glass window behind the altar.
Back outside the church you’ll see little garden plots that lead the way to the Bishop’s House, which was built back in 1855. When you’re ready to leave, head to Saint Patrick’s Church to see another local place of worship, or make your over to Manoel Island and visit a historic fort.
