The Beacon Centre


The Beacon Centre is a live and active community hub with activities and groups that include choirs, art and craft, exercise and dance groups, drama and more.  Many activities are run by the church supporting the community, whilst other activities are run by external groups.  Originally opened in 1901, the building has been extensively extended and modernised to provide a multi-purpose facility that caters for a variety of faith and non-faith related activities.   It incorporates a number of different areas, each of which can be hired for private bookings - for details [see below] or send us a booking enquiry.
