Welcome to the Beacon Church and Christian Centre in Dover, Kent.


The Beacon is a local ecumenical partnership between the Methodist and United Reformed churches, and we extend a warm welcome to everyone to come and join us at any of our services and other activities.


Our Minister is the Rev. Miriam Moul and

our Deacon is Michelle Legumi.


Our services are led by a number of Ministers and lay preachers

and range from traditional to contemporary worship.


We hope you will come and join us.


Sunday 23 February at 10.30am

Rev David Hinchliffe

(chair of the South East District of the Methodist Church)

and Rev Miriam Moul.


Sunday 1 March at 10.30am

Morning Worship, including Holy Communion,

led by Rev Miriam Moul.

Our Sunday services are at 10.30am and details of who is leading our worship can be found on our News page. Creative Church for children meets on the second Sunday of each month, at the same time as our church service, and on the fourth Sunday we have Café Church, with coffee served from 10am. The next Café Church is on Sunday, 15 March, rather than the fourth Sunday.


As well as being used for a wide range of church activities, our premises are also well used by community groups. Full details can be found in the Activities section of this website.


We support the Dover Foodbank, Soup Kitchen, Dover Money Course (part of Christians Against Poverty) and the Street Pastors


A new Cooking On A Budget course is running this month and a new CAP Money Course is starting at The Beacon in March. Click here for more details.


We especially support Action For Children, Methodist Homes and Christian Aid.


We hope you enjoy reading our website, and that you will come and join us.
