Welcome to The Beacon Benefice. . . .
We are a group of churches in the Church of England (which is the officially Established Christian Church (Protestant)) centred around the large village of Painswick, on the Western edge of the Gloucestershire Cotswolds. We have six congregations in six historic churches, and PSALMS, an activities programme for children, young people and families. We have our own Facebook group for upcoming events on https://www.facebook.com/groups/838401489638991/
From Bishop Rachel, Preaching At Edge Parish Church on Sunday 15 April
". . It is a delight to be here with you on the third Sunday of Easter and as you continue to live this time of vacancy - a time of opportunity and growing together as you live the process of appointing a new vicar. ..
From Revd Canon Michael Irving, one of our retired clergy
Dear Friends June 2018
The phrase “lost in wonder love and praise” from Charles Wesley’s hymn has constantly been running through my mind as we have come out of a long winter and enjoyed some spectacular weather. It is the arrival once again of the spring foliage, when the leaves seem so fragile and clean for the first few weeks of their lives that is so wonderful. Walking round a friend’s garden with new plants literally coming up out of the soil leaves me wonder struck.
