Welcome to the Church of England in Lyndhurst, Emery Down and Minstead
Situated as we are in one of the most beautiful spots in God’s creation, we 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 three churches has its own unique beauty: St. Michael and All Angels Church in Lyndhurst has a Victorian Gothic splendour that is breathtaking. Also Victorian but with a restrained simplicity, Christ Church in Emery Down has all the charm and peace which you would expect from a country church. Whilst All Saints Church in Minstead dates from the 11th century and is full of intimate detail – and is one of the churches the Victorians forgot!
All three churches took part in ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ praying for the evangelisation of the nation in the nine days leading up to Pentecost Sunday (15th May) – see Diocese of Winchester and the national website: Thy Kingdom Come.
