We had looked forward to exploring Gloucester with its quirky historic remnants of churches, monasteries etc. scattered around its centre. However, except for the cathedral most of the historical attractions seem to be closed in winter, and on top of that St. Mary is now...More

Being a fan of George Whitefield it was a great joy to visot this church where he preached his first sermon... the informal tour guides were very informative and helpful. May the proclamation of the Gospel of Christ continue from this church.

Visited during our walk around Gloucester Docks area this Sunday. Unfortunately the church is shut Sundays ?????????? It looked rather decrepit with untidy grave yard and the church appeared to be used as a store room from what we could see through the windows.........

We were luck enough to be given 'the potted tour' by a friendly local lady. Interesting history relating to the early Methodists and the Sunday School Movement,
