A church for the parish poor

This magnificent Victorian church was built in a fabulously ornate Medieval style and was intended for the poor of the parish, who could not afford to pay for seats in Tetbury’s other church, St Mary’s.

Constructed of local stone and Cotswold slates, it was designed by a local architect Samuel Dawkes, assisted by A W Pugin and John Hardman.

    There is a wonderful gas chandelier, some good windows particularly when the sun is shining, a large and elegant font. A very keen lady will show you around.

    I have known and loved this church for many years and would love to see it warm and alive more often than is possible at the moment. Imagine the evening service with not only the gas chandelier or but also gas jets fixed behind the top of the screen illuminating the altar. These must have seemed so wonderful to the first congregations,as would the splendid font and medieval feel to this High Victorian church.

Keyholder

If the access information for this church is listed as 'Keyholder nearby', this means that the key is kept by one of our invaluable volunteer 'keyholders', who usually live just a short walk from the church and can give visitors the key; sometimes this is a nearby hotel, pub, library, art gallery or other venue. You will find instructions explaining how to get the key when you arrive at the church.

Disabled access

Good disability access - part of the Shopmobility scheme.

Facilities

Due to the historic nature of our buildings, only a very small number of them have heating or running water meaning that they can be cold, and very rarely have toilet facilities. The lighting is usually operated via a 'push button' timer or a motion sensor. We do apologise for any inconvenience the lack of facilities may cause.
