Reaching our community with the love of Jesus


Beacon Lounge

Opening Times

Monday to Fridays: 10am to 2pm

Closed Saturdays & Sundays but you are welcome to join us for church at 10.30am on Sunday.

You may not realise this but in the Beacon Lounge we also help rough sleepers with hot drinks, toast and small bags of easy to eat food. We run a "suspended coffee" scheme in the Beacon Lounge for paying customers to buy an extra coffee for us to give away to rough sleepers. We are low on donations specifically for this purpose. If you would like to support this, please make a financial donation - either in person in the Beacon Lounge or you can send it it to us with a note that it is for this purpose and we will ensure it is properly used.

Do you like what we do and have a couple of hours to spare? We would welcome help serving drinks and washing up, either regularly or as a reserve to cover holidays and sickness.  Ring us on 023 9247 0167 to arrange an informal chat with Katie to discuss it. We are a happy team and would welcome some more happy people to join us!

Have you missed breakfast? We now offer bacon baps all day. Light lunches are available between 12.30 and 1.45pm. Have you tried one of our paninis or toasties yet? Gluten free options available.

What is Beacon Lounge?

You will find us on the first floor of the Meridian Centre, part of The Beacon.
