The Holy Trinity Anglican Church, Main Street, Stawell, makes a significant architectural and cultural contribution to the local area. The Church building was constructed in 1870-72 to a design by the eminent Melbourne architect, Leonard Terry. Although suffering from falling damp, the exterior of the building is largely intact. Internally, the Church has experienced some changes.

The Holy Trinity Anglican Church is architecturally significant at a LOCAL level. It demonstrates original design qualities of a Victorian Decorated Gothic Revival style. These qualities include the steeply pitched and parapetted gable roof form clad in slate. Other intact qualities include the unpainted brick wall construction, freestone quoins, drip moulds, stringcourse, door lintel, buttress copings and parapet blocks, large Decorated Gothic stained glass tracery window on the main gable end, flat-headed door opening, small lancets, unpainted brick buttresses, pointed leadlight windows, granite wall base, and the crowning crosses. Although there have been changes to the interior, there are internal features that also contribute to the significance of the place. These features include the open, timber trussed roof space, apse, Gothic Revival styled timber chancel screen, choir stalls, timber seating, and plastered wall finishes.

The Holy Trinity Anglican Church is historically significant at a LOCAL level. It is associated with the development of the Anglican Church in Stawell from the late 1850s. It is further associated with the official Diocesan architect, Leonard Terry, and to a lesser extent with the prolific church architect, Louis R. Williams.

The Holy Trinity Anglican Church is socially significant at a LOCAL level. It is recognised and highly valued by the Stawell Anglican community for religious and cultural reasons.
