What's happening at The Beacon ... and other places

Alpha Course
11 Tuesday evenings starting February 20th at Acorn Community Centre

We are pleased to be running the popular Alpha course once again at the Acorn Community Centre in Wecock Farm early this year.  There will be 11 sessions on Tuesday evenings starting February 20th.  They will run from 6 to 8pm including a meal together, a video and time for discussion.  Each week focusses on a different aspect of what the Christian faith is all about.

Your Primetime Misson
5 Thursday evenings from Jan 11th to Feb 8th from 7.30 to 9.30pm

This five week series of workshops, led by John Swindell of Lighthouse Ministries, are intended to help you get confidence and strategy to share your Christian faith in the everyday situations you live and work in.  We encourage everyone in our church family, who didn't attend last year, to be part of this.  Members of other churches are welcome to - there is no charge but an offering will be taken for John on the last week.
* NB Entrance by our outside Elm Lane door by the pedestrian crossing *

Active Coffee Mornings
Tuesday mornings Feb 6th, Mar 6th, Apr 3rd, May 1st from 10am to 12.00pm

We run an Active Coffee Morning for seniors on the first Tuesday morning of each month.
Two Table Tennis tables are available, along with indoor bowls and board games such as Scrabble, Boggle, draughts etc.
Entry is via Beacon Lounge, cost is £1 to include a hot drink and biscuit served in the hall and access to all the activities.
It's a great way to spend some time with old friends and make some new ones.

Pause and Pray - for Havant Borough
First Monday evening every month: 6pm to 7pm
NB January meeting on January 8th

Pause and Pray is an invitation to every church in the Borough of Havant to come together once a month for one hour to pray in unity for our area.  The venue is St Thomas church, Old Bedhampton which is one of the oldest Christian meeting places in our Borough.  Please contact us on This email address is being protected from spambots.

The WellSpring
Second Sunday evening every month: 7pm to 8.30pm

This is an opportunity to spend a longer time in God's presence in worship and, as He leads us prophetically, in intercession to see the spiritual  'well springs' of Havant uncapped.  We have started this monthly time for those in our local church family but hope that others in the area will want to join with us as it develops.
