St Martin's, Horsley

Horsley 3in1


In 2010 St Martin’s church was perilously close to becoming redundant but through the vision and determination of the local community and the help and foresight of Rob Stephens, the Buildings and Admissions advisor in the Diocesan Children and Young People’s Department, the church underwent an exciting makeover to bring it well and truly into the 21st century.


In a ground breaking project, the first of its kind in Gloucestershire, if not England, an inspiring design by local young architects Millar Howard Workshop transformed the cold and outdated church interior into a warm, comfortable, dynamic, multi-functional space for everyone in the community. 


St Martin’s was recently rededicated as a place of worship and the Church is used every day by the school but a third use for the space is as a venue for a diverse range of events for the local community and beyond. It has become an exciting new venue for people to come and see art, plays, concerts and film.


We hope that more people will hear about the Horsley 3in1 project and come and see what’s been achieved here.  Income generation from hosting events will help ensure we keep this fabulous building at the heart of our village for future generations to come.
