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.

The Last Supper – In accordance with our contract of purchase, this picture will be leaving us for nearly six months whilst it forms part of a Retrospective Exhibition of Portraits by Lorna May Wadsworth to be held at Graves Gallery, Sheffield, between 9th November 2019 and 15th February 2020. The painting is due to be removed on 22nd October and to be replaced with a scanned copy within a few days. I will let you know when we have further details of the exhibition. It will be very interesting to visit and compare our picture with portraits she has also produced including those of David Blunkett and Margaret Thatcher.
