Welcome to St Lawrence Church, Barnwood.

We are the Church of England Parish Church for the communities of Barnwood and Abbeymead in Gloucester.

We are a community of Christians, from different walks of life, of different ages and stages of faith. Our aim is to grow as followers of Jesus Christ, loving God and one another and sharing the good news of Jesus with those around us.

We welcome people of all ages, of any religious background or none, and pray that you will find the love of God through our community.
