Our church has been selected among 30 churches across the nation as one of “The Nation’s Favourite Churches”,a published book by Andrew Barr, associated with BBC Songs of Praise.

Mentioned in Domesday Book in 1086, Down Hatherley is a sprawling village with the church at its centre. The perpendicular tower of St. Mary and Corpus Christi Church dates from the 15th century. The building is very picturesque and is a popular church for weddings and special events.  It is rich in history and a sell-out event celebrating the church’s links with the American Declaration of Independence featured in the Gloucester History Festival 2017,

The church has its own small ministry team which leads services once or twice a month.
