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

This Place of Worship was founded before 2012, and we understand it is still open.

Clear Spring Church met in the former Moreland's Match Factory premises, now Moreland's Trading Estate - which seems to have a bit of everything to offer.

A closure, as "Clearspring Church, First Floor, Unit 54B, Moreland Trading Estate, Bristol Road, Gloucester", was recorded in The London Gazette of 30th May 2014 (p.10758) in a list of buildings which are no longer used by the congregations on whose behalf they were registered for worship in accordance with the Places of Worship Registration Act 1855. I have been unable to find a record of its original registration, or indeed to verify it refers to the same premises, as a Google StreetView image shows a sign which reads "Clearspring Church" to premises designated as "6G" as of October 2012; and as of June, 2014, a website - - is still in existence, so I am not sure how the Gazette notice relates. Nevertheless, it is the official "mouthpiece", as it were.


Now or formerly Christians.

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

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.
