Beacon Church Centre - Worship, Prayer & Learning

Worship

Worship is in the best tradition of the reformed, evangelical church. We aim for contemporary, lively, relaxed worship that is relevant to all ages present. We believe that worship should be an opportunity to bring both our praise and our concerns to God as well as an opportunity to allow God to minister to us. Hymns come from a wide variety of sources and cover the best of the last three hundred years of hymnody. Dance and drama are used from time to time.

Sundays at 11.00am

Children and adults worship together for the first twenty minutes after which the children go into Junior Church. Everybody meets together for tea and coffee after worship.
Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of the month
.
Family Worship, which includes the uniformed organisations parades, takes place five times a year. These usually take place on Mothering Sunday, Pentecost, Church Anniversary, Harvest, and the Christmas Toy Service.

Communion is celebrated on the third Sunday of the month.
Family worship takes place twice a year. On Remembrance Sunday there is a Civic Service at which the uniformed organisations parade. The Sunday before Christmas is our Carols by Candlelight and is designed with the whole family in mind.
