Please donate to support the Discover DeCrypt Project

We are delighted to announce that the Discover DeCrypt CIO and the PCC of Hempsted with St Mary de Lode and St Mary de Crypt, Gloucester, have received a confirmed grant of 1.36million from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).

Discover DeCrypt will transform St Mary de Crypt Church and the Old Crypt Schoolroom, Southgate Street, Gloucester from historic buildings in danger of decay and dilapidation into a sustainable heritage attraction, educational resource, cultural venue and community facility in the heart of Gloucester, which is open and available to all. Detailed design work will take place in 2017 with work on site due to start in January 2018 and the buildings reopening in April 2019… on

Project Update

Summer Season 2017

We are delighted that sufficient funding, supported by loans, is now in place to enable the project to start up again in March. Grants from trusts, including GBP50,000 from the Garfield Weston Foundation, GBP26,000 from Allchurches Trust, together with generous donations from individuals,have helped to close the gap.

We are enormously grateful to all those who continue to support the project.

St Mary de Crypt Church has now re-opened for the

summer season, Monday - Saturday 12 noon - 2.00pm

Weekly services take place in church on Fridays at 1.00pm

between April and September when we will pray for our city.

On Friday 5 May, we welcome members of the

Gloucestershire Regimental Association, Gloucester

Branch as we lay up a standard and dedicate a new one.

All are very welcome to this short service.
