About the Beacon Church


The church family is made up of all sorts of different people from Camberley, Farnborough and the surrounding areas. We are part of Newfrontiers, an international network of similar churches committed to making disciples, training leaders and planting churches.

The Beacon Church is led by the Elders: Andrew Booth, Chris Mackinlay and Jon Oldaker. The church functions through the support of a talented and committed staff team and leaders of the wider ministries. You are welcome to join us on a Sunday or at a Small Group meeting near you. In addition, we have meetings to suit all ages plus special events throughout the year.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Our roots…

The Beacon Church began life as a church plant from The Coign Church, Woking in 1995. Mark Landreth-Smith was on staff there as the Youth Pastor and the elders sent him, Bev and their family to Camberley.

At the time, Berkshire Road Evangelical Church were meeting at a building called The Beacon. Robert Taylor and the existing members generously handed over the building and assets to the new Church. A year later the Church had grown beyond the Beacon building and moved to Cordwalles School for Sunday mornings.

God continued to grow the Church, which then relocated again three years later to Kings International College. The Beacon Church family met in the drama studio until 2007 when we moved into the sports hall at Kings following a brief sojourn at Collingwood. After 10 years at Kings, we have now moved to Tomlinscote School. We believe, as we keep in step with the Holy Spirit, The Beacon Church family will continue to grow.

Mark and Bev (along with daughter Phoebe) moved on from the Beacon in December 2014 to plant a new Church in Newbury.

Andrew Booth is now the Lead Elder.
