Standish parish church is the Grade I listed Church of St Nicholas. The present building dates from the early 14th century, but is likely to have been built on the site of an earlier church, possibly dating from the 12th century. For further information (and its link to Edward II) see under History
The church boasts a high nave and choir, beautiful windows and a pencil thin spire which soars above the old lime trees shading the churchyard. For miles around this spire dominates the view across the green fields as it has done for more than 700 years. Proudly surmounted by a golden cockerel, in the winter months it is beautifully floodlit.
The church is owned by the Gloucester Diocese and is administered by an elected Parochial Church Council (PCC).
If you would like to arrange a service, baptism, wedding or funeral please contact the Rector on 07466 858975 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
