Order of St Kyneburga

People recognised for their long service to the Church

The Company of St Kyneburga is a group of people who have served the Diocese of Gloucester with distinction in a way that many wish to honour.

Members of the Company, having been nominated by others, are admitted to the Company and receive their badge of membership at a special service in Gloucester Cathedral.

The awards take place annually. The Company takes its name from Kyneburga, co-foundress and abbess in the eighth century of the first religious community at what is now Gloucester Cathedral.

Membership of the Company of Saint Kyneburga recognises and honours service to the Diocese, usually over a very long period of time, by Readers, churchwardens, church architects, musicians, head teachers, clergy and others”.


This year’s award service took place on 26th June at The Cathedral.

We had one nomination from Stroud Deanery - Lorna Neivzydowsky who worships in The Stroudwater Team
