    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.
