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 Rev Stephen Jarvis has joined us as part of the team in our Nailsworth Benefice. Stephen is an associate priest, working previously in the Bisley Benefice.


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. 


There is a Community Lunch Club held at the Arkell Centre every 2nd & 4th Monday at 12.00 pm. Home cooked food is provided and the cost is £7.00 for two courses. Everyone welcome. Contact Stephen on 872251. Transport can be arranged.


Mary’s Meals. Thanks to a variety of fund raising activities during the first half of the year we have been able to send £322.20 to this excellent charity who provide meals for some of the world’s poorest children every school day.
