English Church – The History of a Building Opens

Last updated on 26th October 2022

The Regional Secretary for Tourism and Culture, Eduardo Jesus, through the Regional Directorate of the Archive and Library of Madeira (DRABM), will officially open tomorrow, Wednesday the 26th of October at 17h00, an exhibition “English Church of Madeira – The History of a Building.”

This exhibition, curated by Cefyn Embling-Evans, was conceived with the aim of celebrating the Bicentenary (1822-2022) of Holy Trinity Church, Funchal, and marking the deposit of its historical documents in the Archive and Library of Madeira.

Holy Trinity Church often known as The Anglican Church, and English Church, was built in 1820 by order of the British Consul Henry Veitch.  As the church was not allowed to resemble a traditional building the church’s architecture was based on the neoclassical temple style temple inspired by the Florentine Renaissance.

The bilingual exhibition will be open until the 15th of January,  in the Madeira Archive and Library lobby.
