The Badminton Benefice

Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials 2017


Once again, we are pleased to announce that there will be a small chapel at the Badminton Horse Trials. We look forward to welcoming anyone who wishes to take some time out from the excitement and hustle and bustle of the Horse Trials, to make some time for reflection and prayers. There will be a vicar on duty throughout the opening times of the chapel, and tea and coffee will be available to everybody. To see the location of the chapel, please click on this link to see the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials site plan for 2017.
