Cemeteries

We believe the Church does NOT have a graveyard.

Note: any church within an urban environment may have had its graveyard closed after the Burial Act of 1853. Any new church built after that is unlikely to have had a graveyard at all.

Church History

We don't know when this Place of Worship was founded, but we understand it is still open.

The Gloucester City Mission have been meeting in the George Whitefield Centre since 2016. It was formerly the home of Gloucester City Church, who still hold some of their meetings here, but GCC's main Sunday Service is held in Wesley Hall, a former Methodist Mission, in Seymour Road.

The Gloucester City Mission was founded in 2003 by Mike Curtis, with the "mission" to follow in the footsteps of the City Mission tradition begun by David Naismith in in Glasgow during the 1820s. Those who would like to know more about the intervening years (2003-2016) are invited to visit Gloucester City Mission website for current information, as they have an excellent "About Us" account of this period.

Denomination

Now or formerly Newfrontiers.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.

This Church is located at OS grid reference SO8364518670. You can see this on various mapping systems. Note all links open in a new window:

(NB I know the first two don't work as intended - the Jury's still out as to what to do about it...)

Resources

I have found many websites of use whilst compiling the information for this database. Here are some which deserve mention as being of special interest for Gloucester, and perhaps to Local History and Places of Worship as a whole.

The above links were selected and reviewed at the time I prepared the information, but please be aware their content may vary, or disappear entirely. These factors are outside my control.
