You’ve found us, and we are pleased to welcome you
My name is Darrell Holmes, Pastor at the Beacon. We are honoured as a family to serve God and be part of the wider Baptist family. The Baptist Church, Kilmington gathers at The Beacon and draws people from across the rural Axe Valley and beyond. We’ve been around the area since 1650, so we have a great history. Read all about it here But most people want to know about the church of today. We are ordinary people with an extraordinary passion to be servants for Christ Jesus.
We aim to reflect the love of Jesus to all we meet daily in our lives. That means you too! We have a congregation of over 140 people of all ages serving the community in a variety of ways. We seek to be a Beacon for Jesus, living out our faith wherever we may be, and in whatever we do.
Our verse for the year is challenging us to pray for those who are not-yet believers and also to be united with all of God’s church both locally and globally. However, the best way to get to know us is to come along to one of our meetings or events which are shown here

We are making November special this year. We all know the rhyme “Remember, remember the fifth of November”, but we have so much more that we do well to remember this month.
We will re-member Christ’s body as we share communion, we will Remember the Fallen, we will Remember what it means to be “in Christ” in our sermon series, and Remember those suffering with dementia and their carers, we will Remember our Church Leaders. To forget or not care about these important issues would be a shame, so let’s remember together this month.
Come along to our Sunday mornings to learn more
Jesus calls everyone to follow him, and that starts with a decision to deny ourselves and take up our cross. Then we will be ready to follow Jesus through the waters of baptism. If you would like to know more, then do come and witness the baptism of one of our friends who recently decided to give his life to Jesus. It's a powerful and moving event, and it is especially exciting for those who have never seen a believers baptism by full immersion.
Come and see for yourself on Sunday 26th November at 10.30am
