beacon church



Beacon is a growing, diverse church, gathering people from all groups of society and from all over south central London. It currently has community groups in Tulse Hill, West Dulwich and Brixton. We are involved with a number of initiatives including CAP and Foodbank which we run in conjunction with Churches Together Brixton and Stockwell.

Our Vision as a church revolves around three key themes.

Building the church (Looking in)

Glorifying Jesus (Looking up)

Serving the community (Looking out)

Please feel free to visit our vision page for some more information.



Our pastor – Owen Hylton serves as the full-time pastor of Beacon church. He is married to Pauline and they have three daughters, Yasmin, Rhianna and Daisy. Before leading Beacon, Owen was on the full time staff team of Kings Church in Catford. Prior to that, he worked for fourteen years in the civil service. Owen is the author of the book ‘Crossing the Divide – a call to embrace diversity.



Beacon Church was planted in March 2007 out of Kings Church in Catford. In January 2009 Owen Hylton joined the church as pastor since then the church has moved from the Ritzy Picturehouse Cinema to various other homes and is now meeting at Clapham Park Centre, just behind Richard Atkins Primary School.


The church is linked to the Newfrontiers family of churches and is involved in regular Newfrontiers events like Newday (a youth event) and Newfrontiers London Leaders. We have also begun to develop relationships with other churches in our local area and are a member of the Evangelical Alliance.
