In addition to our main meetings we also have a wide range of opportunities to meet together in smaller groups these include….


Small Groups

We have several small groups that meet together either weekly or fortnightly for Bible study, discussion and prayer.  These are a great opportunity to make friends, develop accountability, find support and develop a stronger sense of community.  For more information please contact Pastor Alex Harris (


‘Exploring’ Classes

We regularly put on ‘Exploring’ classes which are an opportunity to join Pastor Alex or another senior leader in exploring specific topics in more detail.  These are normally a four to six week course one evening a week and cover topics such as Christianity Explored (exploring the Christian faith, perhaps for the first time), Bible Explored (tips and tricks to get more out of your Bible reading) and Evangelism Explored (discovering how we can tell others about our Christian faith).  For more information on these courses please check out the Events page to see what is currently running.

Beacon Women take the opportunity to get together roughly once a month for a variety of events including craft nights, dinners with a speaker and country walks.  To find out more about the latest events please check out the Events page or request to join the Beacon Women’s Facebook group here.


Men’s Curry Nights

Several times a year Beacon Men get together for a Curry Night with a comedian.  These events have been great fun, an opportunity to get to know others and invite friends.  To find out when the next Curry Night is scheduled check out the Events page.
