What we Do

Our Ministries are shaped by our vision to reach, raise and release, making modern day apprentices of Jesus who fulfil the great commission.

These fall under two main groupings, Church centred ministries and Community centred ministries.

Church Centred Ministries

Sunday Morning Service

This is our main Word and Worship gathering.  It’s a vibrant, positive life giving gathering centred around The Word and The Holy Spirit. Once a month we celebrate Communion.  Communion is the centre piece of Christian Community.

Sunday Evenings

Sunday evening: 6pm

Is where we gather to zone in on Acts 2: 42-47. First Sunday is Prayer, Second Sunday is Devoted, an interactive gathering centred on Acts 2: 42, Third Sunday is Encounter, our Holy Spirit focused gathering where we pray for the sick, experience the Gifts of The Holy Spirit and prophetic release, and Fourth Sunday is School of The Word, a verse by verse walk through books of the Bible with theological explanation. Fifth Sunday is Training.

Worship

Worship Ministry

Led by Darren Hunt. It includes both tech and music. We have a growing, committed team of worship leaders at Beacon. We emphasise above all the Presence of The Holy Spirit. The worship team meet on Friday nights at 7:30pm for practice and development. We set a high bar for joining the team, along with an obvious commitment to Jesus, you need to be a member of Beacon and be a member of a Life Group, talent is not enough, we look for anointing.

Life Groups

Life Groups

Haze Bryan is our Life Groups Coordinator. Life Groups are where the life of Beacon happens. They meet in homes, are centred around the Word, food, community and support and have two main aims, the first is for more mature believers who are looking for a place of connection and community. If that’s you, then join a L-I-F-E Group. These are where you L learn together, I Inspire each other, F Fellowship together and Evangelise together. Theses groups a facilitated by a Life Group Coordinator. The other type of Life Group is a discipleship group. These are mainly for new believers or for believers who want to revisit their foundations. They follow a three-tier learning programme; Know, Grow and Go. We use our own teaching materials for this along with other teaching materials including Keys To Freedom, SHAPE and School of The Supernatural. Groups meet all over Burntwood, Lichfield and Heath Hayes.
