The Gothic Revival-style architecture of the church stands out among the standard bricksand-mortar buildings that surround it. Built in 1926 to accommodate the joining of the Trinity and Tryon Street Methodist congregations, the church retains its original architecture, including Gothic-style windows that were handcrafted using the same techniques used in European cathedrals built in the 9th and 10th centuries. The 22 stained-glass windows in the church were made from pieces of hand-blown glass that were individually stained to ensure the highest-quality detail and color. The acoustics in the church have earned it a reputation as a premier destination for live performances, from Handel’s Messiah to visits by the Vienna Boys’ Choir, Charlotte Children’s Choir, and the Charlotte Symphony.
