The Anglican Churches of Horsley, Kingscote & Nailsworth

A very warm welcome to our website for this group of three Church of England churches in Gloucestershire.

They are very different in terms of history and tradition and each has its own unique character which you will find more about on the individual web pages.


However all share a strong emphasis on ministry to the whole family.

We welcome members of any church and none.


If you are visiting, moving into the area or just thinking about the meaning of life we would like to welcome you to our churches. In the meantime we hope you will find something of use on our website.

After hearing that 12/14 babies are born daily in Gloucester hospital and immediately have to have a woollen hat (bought hats are no good), Pat-Mary Shotter and friend Shirley Davies have started to knit. To date, they have given over 250. It would be a great help to both of them should any of you have any baby-coloured wool you now no longer need.
