Christians have worshipped in Gloucester for many centuries.

Here in the Parish of Hempsted with St Mary de Lode and

St Mary de Crypt,Gloucester we are proud of the fact that we have

care of the oldest parish church in the city, St Mary de Lode.

Along with the other churches in the parish, St Mary de Crypt and

St Swithun’s, we are part of the Church of England in the Anglican

diocese of Gloucester. Parish life is centred around the weekly

celebration of the Eucharist as we continue to witness to the love

of God in Jesus Christ in the city centre and Hempsted. We do

this in a growing partnership with Gloucester Cathedral as

together we serve the city. In everything we do,we seek to reach

out to the communities around us.

We welcome people who are established in their faith and those

who would like to know more.

Do come and see.

Canon Nikki Arthy, Rector

God of tradition and of change,

you lead your people ever onwards with gentle touch yet

insistent Word.

Give us the grace to seek you,

the honesty to engage with you and the courage to

interpret the Gospel to your world;

through Jesus Christ. Amen.
