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
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.
