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 . . . . .
June, they say, is bustin’ out all over – at least in Carousel they do! There is something special about June. It’s the month of the longest days and shortest nights; which is another way of saying the summer solstice is in June. It’s the first real summer month – even the most chilly mortal may ‘cast a clout’ now that May’s definitely out the way! June also starts on a different day of the week than any other month, so I’m told (well done Wikipedia!). . . .
