Diocesan Vision...

Welcome to the Parish of Mitcheldean and Abenhall, which is situated within the picturesque Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire, England.

We are an active parish and alongside our regular opportunities for worship and celebration, we also offer occasions for private and group prayer, teaching and christian fellowship.

We hold regular social events to strengthen the bonds of friendship between members of our church family and work to engage with the wider community through pastoral care, community-facing events and especially through our strong links with our local church school: Mitcheldean Endowed Primary School.

We are fortunate to have two ancient and beautiful Grade Listed church buildings to underpin our work and both are also of historic interest. St. Michael's, Abenhall has strong links with the Freeminers of the Forest of Dean while St. Michael & All Angels, Mitcheldean boasts one of the few remaining Doom Paintings in the country.

Mitcheldean Church is Open Daily 8.00am until 4.00pm.
Abenhall Church is Open to visitors by arrangement with the church warden. (Contact Sheila Baker on 01594 543522).

As Anglicans, our parish lies within the Severn Vale Deanery in the Diocese of Gloucester, which is part of the wider Church of England. Our national church forms one of the many provinces in the global Anglican Communion, which stretches over 165 countries worldwide.
