Welcome! Beacon Hill United Reformed Church is a small, friendly church based in Hindhead, surrounded by beautiful countryside, seeking to love God and serve our community. You can be assured of a warm welcome. Services are NORMALLY held at 10 a.m. each Sunday, but not at present due to the Coronavirus restrictions currently in place.

Thy Kingdom Come: a global prayer movement
We took part in this invitation to pray for more people to come to know Jesus between 21st – 31st May 2020. Ruth led us in a period of Prayer and Reflection regarding our call and the commission that God has given us. You can still view those reflections that took place on the church’s YouTube channel. https://www.thykingdomcome.global/about-us
We offer a digital form of worship each Sunday morning: please join us as we come together for praise and prayer. There are also a number of other URC churches offering live or recorded morning worship each Sunday. Please go to the Virtual Worship page to see what is available.

Prayer for May
(Commitment for Life Prayer Partners 2020)
We pray for our partners in Commitment for Life, for Bangladesh, for Zimbabwe, for Central America, for Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories. We remember the challenges which face them acutely, but of which we are all a part – climate disruption, sustainability, security and well-being. We pray for the many whose lives have been and are being transformed through our acting, praying and giving. We pray for the work of Christian Aid and Global Justice Now, as they walk alongside and speak for the world’s poorest people. Amen
