BEACON

Beacon is a neighborhood faith community located in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia that strengthens our community, its children and neighbors, through faith, art, and storytelling.

We believe that creative expression and storytelling provide unique avenues for individual and community transformation and growth. We offer space for creative expression through after-school programs for children and youth, regular community meals centered around social justice organizing, community art events for all ages, and an open, welcoming worship service. Beacon is LGBTQ+ affirming, family-friendly, and focused on utilizing our space and resources well to serve the needs of all our neighbors.

Beacon's core values are: 

Adventure, Creativity, Conversation, Collaboration, and being Local.
