St Mary de Lode
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.
We welcome people who are established in their faith and
those who would like to know more.
Do come and see.
