St Matthew, Twigworth Church postcode: GL2 9PG
On Sunday December 15th 2019 Bishop Robert and our Benefice clergy presided over a service at St Matthews to mark its closure. It was wonderful to have a full church of people to celebrate the life and ministry of its people over the years. Details of the future of the building will be posted on this site once details are known.
Although the church has been closed, the churchyard remains open and is maintained by the Seven Towers Benefice. The parish boundaries of neighbouring parishes have been redrawn to take in parts of the old parish of Twigworth with Longford. For full details click here.
The church of St. Matthew, Twigworth, was consecrated in 1844. It lies on the main road to Tewkesbury between Twigworth and Longford and is the resting place of the war poet and musician, Ivor Gurney (1890 – 1937).
The award winning churchyard has a garden of remembrance and some travellers’ memorials.
