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.
Everyone is welcome to join us for Lunch in the Parish Rooms at St George's on the second Wednesday of every month after the morning service of Holy Communion at 10.00 am. All donations are in aid of Mary's Meals. A big thank you to everyone who helped with last Wednesday's barbecue. So many of you gave your support in so many ways; it was just amazing how everything came together on the day, with people being so generous with their gifts for the lunch, and with their time on the day. I am most grateful and thankful. Those who attended were also very generous for Mary's Meals with £200 being given in donations. A truly fantastic result. Thank you all. Stephen
