The Mission Lab


The Mission Lab at Beacon is a learning lab that offers day-long retreats and mission work opportunities to groups who are looking to explore these issues and serve a neighborhood that has often been forgotten by institutions and faith communities. An ideal space and time for sessions, committees, deacons, or other groups to strengthen community, exercise creativity, and connect to God through prayer and mission, the Mission Lab tailors activities to the needs of the group.


Folks who are a part of the Presbytery of Philadelphia are eligible to apply for a "Great Ends Grant" under the Church Leadership Fund to support the costs of their day retreat at Beacon. For more information click here: Great Ends Grant. 


What does a day retreat or work day include?

  • Opportunities for spiritual reflection, prayer, and conversation

  • Time and space for discussion and dreaming, facilitated by Beacon’s co-pastors

  • An exploration of personal and communal gifts and roles in mission and service
