The Beauchamp Almshouses (now called the Beauchamp Community) and the church of St Leonard were completed in 1864 for the benefit of retired workers from the Madresfield Estate and for the poor of the parish.

The then Earl Beauchamp was heavily influenced by the Oxford Movement.  From the outset the community enjoyed daily Anglo-Catholic worship of the very highest standard which continues to the present day. Our benefactors encouraged an atmosphere of prayer, hospitality, friendship and care.   Residency in the community has been expanded to welcome worshipping Anglicans from anywhere in the country, and under today's Trustees, chaired by Lady Rosalind Morrison, the founder's vision is still embodied in our corporate life.  ​

​​ Daily and Sunday Masses are well attended; the magnificent grounds are maintained mostly by members of the community; there is a thriving social life; and Beauchamp continues to be a vibrant and nurturing place in which to live.  ​Although St Leonard's is no longer a parish church, we are enriched by the many visitors who attend regularly our Sunday celebrations of the Mass at 8.00am and 11.00am.    ​​
