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.

St G's Bee's knees, Mary's Meals and other activities and events are on hold until further notice. 

Rev'd Caroline writes:


"Following the government instructions (25/03/2020), our benefice churches will be kept locked during the day until further notice.  
I know that some of you have been coming to church to pray, but for now we will need to pray from our homes.   I will be praying each day at 9am and 6pm at home and invite you to either join me at that time from wherever you are, or find a pattern/time of prayer that fits with your day.
We are entering challenging times, and the pattern of our lives are going to change. There are links to download prayers on the right of this page. We are finding different ways of being church at this time.  We will also be looking at practical ways people can be supported at this time."
Rev'd Caroline sends her prayers and blessings.

Church Services and Events (updated 25th March)


In this exceptional time, the guidance on social distancing and self-isolation will have a major impact on all aspects of everyday life.


As part of loving our neighbour and keeping people safe, the Church is abiding by the instructions of the government. This means that there will be no weddings, baptisms or other services with the exception of funerals until further notice.


Wedding Banns


If your wedding banns have not been able to be read in church, because there is no public worship taking place, you will need to apply for a special licence. The minister taking your wedding will give you advice on how this can be done.




Christian funerals will continue in the Church of England but inevitably there will be some adaptations to protect everyone.


This means funerals can go ahead, but they may be different from what might normally be expected.
