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/

Right at the end of last month, on the 29th of June, was the feast of St Peter and St Paul. One of the reasons we take such notice of this in the Church is that it is traditionally the time for ordinations. A total of 21 people were ordained Deacon or Priest in our Cathedral. Who said the Church is dying?
