Welcome to the Benefice of of Lyndhurst, Minstead and Emery Down
We are situated in one of the most beautiful spots in God's creation and celebrate that fact daily. We are also delighted to be able to share its gifts and beauty with all who visit us.
Our Churches reflect and complement the natural beauty by being sanctuaries of spirituality and care for everyone who lives or visits here.
Each of our Churches has its own unique beauty: St. Michael's has a Victorian Gothic splendor that is breathtaking. All Saints, Minstead dates from the 11th century and is full of intimate detail and one of the Churches the Victorians forgot! Christ Church, Emery Down has all the charm and peace that you could expect from a country Church.
This site includes historical sketches and pictures of our Churches, details of our Sunday and Daily Worship, interesting connections, and contact names. For this week's notices, please click here.
