In 1996 Mark & Beverley Landreth-Smith moved from The Coign Church, Woking to plant The Beacon Church Camberley. Mark was the Youth Pastor in Woking. The good and faithful folk of Berkshire Rd Evangelical Church Old Dean needed some help, so Mark & Bev responded to the call with their young family and moved to lead the new church.
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. The sports hall has been specially adapted acoustically for worship.
We believe as we keep in step with the Holy Spirit The Beacon Church family will continue to grow. What began as a small group of 30 people has now grown, by God’s grace, to 300 in The Beacon family.
Where we are now…
The church has recently finished a substantial building programme and converted the original church site to be a two story Ministry, function and office centre.
