Trinity Methodist Church with its rich history provides a great photo opportunity. In the year 1814 a large house situated at the southern end of Nassau Court was adapted to make the original Methodist Chapel, with a seating capacity of 500 persons. However, in 1830 a new larger West Chapel was built on the same site which later became Government High School, and then more recently housed offices of the Ministry of Tourism. The congregation at the West Chapel felt the need for a larger and more centrally situated place of worship which led to the building of Trinity Methodist Church on its present site.  

The building that was intended to serve as a chapel and schoolroom to accommodate a congregation of 800 persons took four years to construct. It was dedicated on Sunday 2nd April, 1865 but just 18 months later a hurricane totally destroyed the building. The Church was completely rebuilt with the roof lowered by ten feet. Then yet another natural disaster wreaked havoc on Trinity Church, on the 16th September, 1928, two thirds of the western end was blown away which resulted in the gallery disappearing and the remains of its large and powerful organ were found in the basement. The building was soon repaired and restored but the gallery was not replaced. The Hall organ, installed in 1929, was replaced by a three-manual Wicks Pipe Organ in 1964.  

In 1973 the stained glass windows were installed, and were dedicated on Sunday 17th June of that year. These beautiful windows (with the exception of three) tell the story of Jesus from His birth through boyhood, to the calling of the disciples, the telling of parables, His triumphant ride into Jerusalem followed by His death on the Cross and His glorious resurrection on that first Easter Day. They were all given in memory of loved ones by members of the congregation.  

Queen's College, a Methodist School, was started at Trinity in January, 1890. It relocated to its present campus on Village Road in 1961.
