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 in 2008, and we understand it is still open.

Destiny Temple is a Registered Charity #1113679. Information provided by the Charities Commission website indicates it has been known previously as the Redeemed Christian Church of God Destiny Temple, and Redeemed Christian Church of God Gloucester Jesus Kingdom City; and by the current (2014) working names of J.K.C. and Jesus Kingdom City.

The date of their original trust deed is given as 1st March 2006, with amendments on 8th July 2008 and 28th May 2011.

They meet in the former St Mark's Church, which closed in November 2006, though the Church Commissioners Report on Pastoral and Closed Churches in Gloucester Diocese, on the Church of England website notes that it was not disposed of for worship by other Christian bodies until 2 years later, 7th October 2008.

There is one other Church in Gloucester belonging to the Redeemed Christian Church of God, known as "Overcomers House", in Parry Road; and there are two in Cheltenham, one meeting in St Andrew's URC Church in Montpellier, and the other meeting in the Salvation Army Hall in Bath Road.


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.
