(places need to be booked at adminstrator@beaconbaptist.co.uk).

If you can't join us in person then join us online on at 


 We are still church at The Beacon, in our homes, in our communities, bringing hope, praying for change, sharing our stories. 


We are...
 a church of about 80 members, with a congregation of around 140 people, from toddlers to over 90s.

Our Senior Pastor is Darrell Holmes, who moved here with his family in February 2008 to take up the role. He is joined by Mike Hudson, our Associate Pastor who joined us in 2018. 


Alongside them is our leadership team, made up of a secretary, a treasurer and two Elders. The Ministries of the church are co-ordinated by Ministry Team Leaders.


Whatever we call ourselves in the leadership team, we work together to provide direction and oversight to the church.  We believe strongly that all members and friends have gifts, both spiritual and natural, to be used in the work of the church, outreach, and building each other up and encourage everyone to be a part of a Ministry Team. We are all committed to our Vision and Values, believing God has called us to serve Him wherever we are.

All through the UK lockdown and pandemic restrictions we have found a way to continue sharing the good news, living it out and being a Beacon for Jesus. You can join us too, so get in contact and we'd love to chat.
