Beacon Community Church was formed in 2011, by the merging of two Wesleyan Reform churches; Slackside, Wibsey and Central Avenue, Little Horton, Bradford. The Worship Hall is built on the premises that was once Slackside Church.
Our aim is to provide God’s word through worship, communion, Bible studies, family friendly activities, and unwavering pastoral support to the congregation and wider Wibsey community. The church also offers weddings, funerals and dedications.
We also welcome community activities led by church members or those affiliated to them.
Our current Pastor is Paul Brown, who is also Chaplain at Bradford (Park Avenue) AFC and is a Registered Evangelist with Outreach UK
