About Us 

We're a charismatic and community focused church based at the Bridge Development in north Dartford. The Beacon has been part of the Bridge since its very beginnings in 2008 and continues to grow with this new community. Our values promote an openness to the Holy Spirit, a creative and contemporary life of worship, and a servant heart for our community and town.

Exploring the message of Jesus 

You may want to know more about Jesus, who he is and why his message is so significant. The short video here begins to explain his message of love and why it's so important.

No.3 Coffee House 

The Beacon Church runs a community coffee shop on the Bridge Development called No.3 Coffee House. Our vision for the Coffee House is that it becomes a hub for the community, a place for groups to meet, and where good conversation happens.

Over the course of the year we will be running the Alpha Course, holding various prayer events (including Prayer for Healing), and gathering for Connect Groups at the Coffee House.
