Beacon House Ministries

Beacon House exists as a Christian agency to offer a wide range of holistic services within an atmosphere of acceptance and care to those in need.

Beacon House offers health care facilities to those who find themselves homeless in and around the Colchester area. We also cater for those in insecure accommodation or those at risk of losing their home. We do not offer accommodation.

During the last year (2007) our client visits reached 6270 and we offered nearly 3000 showers or shaves. Our basement services continue to be as busy as ever with 2630 laundry requests, 1374 clothing requests and 834 requests for toiletries. The clinic visits continue to rise and our nurse had 1242 consultations during the year.

We also run a series of life skills training courses covering a range of subjects including cookery, budgeting, computing and arts and crafts. See our 'Lifeskills' page.
