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.

Jesus raises many questions for all of us, and the best way to explore these is through honest and open conversation. At the Beacon Church there are several places you can do this, at the monthly Alpha evenings, at Big Talk, and meeting us at Dartford Park. To find out when one of these events is happening check out the events calendar below.


Men’s Breakfast


A few of us met up for breakfast at the Beefeater Pub on the Bridge. Good conversation as always and a deep discussion on the work of the Holy Spirit in the church! Good food, going both sides of the Channel with a “Continental” for starters and then a “Full English”! Thanks to Gray for […]

Hope for Justice Walk


We had a good time on the 14th June walking the 3.5 miles to Bluewater. Hope for Justice issued the challenge to collectively clock enough miles to get around the world in 80 days, and our contribution adds to their total. We also raised some money for Hope for Justice, a Christian charity that works […]

Bridge Big Lunch


The Beacon facilitated another successful Big Lunch at the Bridge on Sunday 7th June. We had about 350 residents and local people come along to enjoy the music, food, and fun. A big thank you to all the stewards, stall holders, and Smiley Ark for the crafts, and a big thank you to Caroline and […]

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.
