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.

Gloucester City Church meet in the former Methodist Mission Hall ('Wesley Hall'), on the north west corner of the junction of Seymour Road and Frampton Road. It is an imposing building, which was erected in 1909, for a Wesleyan Methodist congregation who had been meeting informally since 1891.

It was closed for Methodist services in 1965, and sold to the City Education Committee the following year, after which it became 66 Star Youth Centre. It was due to close in 2011, but obviously obtained a reprieve. The Gloucester City Church also hold some of their meetings in the former George Whitefield Centre in Great Western Road; but their website suggests "The Chapel" in Seymour Road is their main place of worship.

Denomination

Now or formerly New Frontiers.

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