The Beacon Centre
We are here to shine the transforming light of the gospel of Jesus Christ into the community of Handsworth and beyond. The new Beacon Centre continues and develops that vision by creating a physical space where lives are transformed and restored as we respond compassionately to the needs of our community. The Beacon Centre will be a welcoming place where people of all ages, cultures and backgrounds can find both practical and spiritual help.
Go, be fruitful and multiply
We believe God has told us to ‘Go’ into our community to show people his love and to introduce them to the good news of Jesus. Even as we have begun to do this, we have experienced strong growth in numbers which has put pressure on the capacity of our existing building. Equally, it has become clear that the building itself is no longer adequate for our vision of transformation and restoration.

Our vision is to use the building to deliver services to those most in need in our area. We would like to provide
- counselling and support to address mental health needs
- facilities and support for parents with young children
- signposting and language learning to support incomers
- a place for young people to belong, learn and play
- a place for older people to socialise and obtain help
Scope of New Beacon fund
Beacon Evangelical Church (“the Church”) is raising funds to buy or build a new church building and to pay for any associated expenses. If for any unforeseen reason we are unable to buy or build a new church building or there are surplus funds left over, we will use the donations for other purposes to further the Church’s charitable objects.
We have estimated that the Beacon Centre will cost around £2.2 million to build and so far we have raised around £90,000.The Church community is committed to the long term support of this project.
