Fretherne is in the centre of the Severnside Group of parishes. A small parish of 150 people with 27 on the electoral roll. 50% of our population are young families, many of whom are part of the farming world. Festivals such as Harvest, Easter and Christmas see our church full. Our services have a modern focus and our aim is to attract all generations.
Fretherne Church is known as Gloucestershire's Mini Cathedral. It is a tiny church of great beauty, with a depth of history researched and documented. It was restored in Victorian times and is of interest to the Bristol Victorian Society.
There is a wholesale nursery production site opposite the church which employs many people, so the village is not empty during the day.
The church is close to the Severn Way, so we have a constant stream of visitors.
