Beacon Community Church - doing things differently
Beacon Community Church was planted in 2009 by the Eastern Baptist Association and is based in the premises of the former Bacton Baptist Church. Since the beginning we have wanted to do church differently - to see church work in a very rural context. Home Mission support has been a great help over these past five years as we have steadily grown, though progress has been slow at times. Twelve baptisms (plus three more in the pipeline) is encouraging, but we desperately want to see more! Like many small rural churches we can feel isolated and thus greatly appreciate the prayer support of other interested congregations and individuals. Visitors are very welcome!
On most Sundays we would average about 45 people but a much greater number are involved in small groups, parent & toddler, and craft groups. More than simply numbers, we are seeing life change: salvation, water baptism, baptism in the Spirit, people receiving inner healing from past wounds, physical healing and other breakthroughs. It is wonderfully encouraging to see God at work in this way. But at the same time we are very conscious that we are simply dipping a toe into the ocean.
Please pray for us!
For Holy spirit breakthrough in a spiritually barren location
For wisdom and stamina
For leaders in a number of key areas
