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 Our Vicar . . . . .
As I write this, we are in the middle of a really mixed up April. The weather can’t seem to make up its mind whether it really is the start of spring or whether to fall back into winter again. And, after a wet winter (and a pretty damp summer and autumn before that), the rain has been coming often enough to keep everything soggy. Then, we don’t call them April showers for nothing – even if they have been more like April downpours!
Let’s hope things will improve now we’re in May. . . .
