Connect Groups

Our mid-week small group programme is focussed around Connect Groups – Connecting with God, Connecting with each other, Connecting with our community.

A number of groups operate each week in Whitchurch town and in surrounding villages. Details of meeting times and venues are available in church Sunday by Sunday.


The small group programme is augmented from time to time with ALPHA - we seek to run at least one Alpha group each term. Participants in Alpha are then encouraged to go on to our BETA group to further their knowledge and understanding of the Christian faith.


As part of our small group programme OAK (Older Adults Klub) meets on the first Wednesday of each month from 10:30 am – 12:00 noon at the Beacon Church Office. The group, hosted by Roger, is for the over 55’s and seeks to build solid foundations and solid growth through solid Bible Study. Further details are available from the church office. 


We firmly believe prayer to be an essential ingredient of our Christian life and witness. A number of opportunities for corporate prayer exist every week:

  • Saturday morning - 8.00am until 9.00am at the Church Office

  • Sunday morning - 10.00am until 10.15am immediately prior to our morning meeting 

  • Sunday evening - 7.00pm until 8.00pm as part of our evening service at the Church Office

  • First & third Monday evening - 7.30pm until 9.00pm at the Church Office 

Inspire & Mandate Events

These are events designed as outreach to family, friends, colleagues who are not Christians.

Inspire events provide an opportunity for ladies to meet together to enjoy each other’s company, learn new things, encourage and motivate each other. Some of the things we've enjoyed so far include jewellery making, drama and flower arranging demonstrations.

Mandate events are for the men of the church and their friends. We meet up periodically for fun, fellowship and often a meal.
