Reaching our community with the love of Jesus

About Us

Welcome to The Beacon

The Beacon - home of Portsdown Community Church

As a local part of God's world-wide family of Christians, we have been present in Havant Borough since 1982.

Since 1996 the church has been based on the first floor of the Meridian Centre (a shopping centre in the centre of Havant). We also meet regularly in homes and other venues in the Borough.

Our regular congregation - from many backgrounds and from across the age range - has come to experience Christ personally, and desires that others too may know God's forgiveness, joy and peace.

A friendly welcome awaits anyone who wishes to visit us - for meeting times see our 'Church Life' section.

What We Believe . . .


The church is not the building: it is the people who may meet sometimes in a building!

Jesus Christ, God's Son, came into this world as a man. He was crucified, rose from the dead, and is now alive. His life is expressed by His Spirit present in the lives of those who believe in Him.

Our Message is the Good News about Jesus Christ - who is for ever totally relevant to the needs of every person. God is deeply concerned with our everyday lives, our homes, families and work relationships.
We believe that He is not remote from us and our problems, but holds the answers to life in our generation.
