The Beacon Team Mission Community consists of five parishes.
Burneside St Oswald with Longsleddale, Whereas Burneside is a large, industrial village with a Church School, Longsleddale is a very scattered rural farming community.
Grayrigg St John the Evangelist is a small rural parish, with many active farms and a thriving Church School
Kendal St George is a town parish situated right next to the river Kent with the highest population in the Beacon Team.
Skelsmergh St John the Baptist is situated just off the A6 and consists of scattered rural houses and farms.
Selside St Thomas is situated further north up the A6 and is also very rural with a small scattered population and Church school.
The Beacon Team launched as a Mission Community on Advent Sunday 2019 with the intention that all the Churches in the Team, in partnership with other denominations, would work towards sharing their resources and skills to enable the vision of ‘God for All’ become a reality. For everyone across Cumbria to have had an opportunity to discover more of God and God’s purpose for their lives.
We are just starting on this journey and are looking to see where God will take us, and what Mission opportunities open up in our communities.
