A visit to St Mildred’s Church in Whippingham will be our first stop where we will have a guided tour of the lovely Victorian building and hear something of its interesting history.

 

Onwards to Godshill for a leisurely lunch, before our visit to Quarr Abbey with its historic links with Beaulieu Abbey and which continues as a working Benedictine Monastery. 

 

Father Luke will welcome us and tell us something of work of the Abbey. We can then enjoy afternoon tea before joining the Brothers for vespers at 5pm. 

 

We shall return to Beaulieu by about 8pm.

The results of 'Songs of Praise'

We were rewarded with a fine evening, and had a delightful informal service, led by Hugh Ashley of Radio Solent fame.  Pictures in the Gallery now!

Songs of Praise in the Abbey Ruins

This coming Sunday, 13th August 2017, we will sing 'Songs of Praise' at the site of the ancient Cistercian Abbey in the grounds of the Beaulieu Estate..

The service will be led by Hugh Ashley, formerly of BBC Radio Solent.  Please park in Church Meadow and enter the Estate via the Abbey Church.

If the weather is inclement, the service will be held in the Beaulieu Abbey Church.

 

The Benefice BBQ: Venue Change

A decision has been taken today (Thursday, 27 July) to re-locate the Benefice BBQ from its traditional home on the Rectory Lawn, to the drier and warmer spot of the Abbey Church Hall!  The weather forecast for the next few days is uncertain in the extreme, and the risks simply did not seem to warrant remaining outside.  Everything else is the same; Welcome Drinks at 6.00pm; Food from 6.30, with a sumptuous menu of Barbequed Chicken with Dauphinoise potatoes, followed by Strawberries and Cream.  We will need to clear the Abbey Church Hall after the event, to allow the decorators to start work on Monday morning.
