BeaconLight Trust is a non-denominational Christian training organisation that provides biblical training resources. BeaconLight is a registered charity (no. 1047046),[1] a member of Global Connections[2] and the Evangelical Alliance.

History[edit]

BeaconLight started in 1995, running face-to-face training courses, predominantly in South-East England. These courses involved participants from approx. 400 churches, and were normally based at Banstead Baptist Church.[3] Since 2007, BeaconLight has offered free-to-use training resources over the internet. In 2009 BeaconLight published its first book, Truth Direct.[4]

Word@Work[edit]

In November 2007, BeaconLight began offering a daily devotional email service named Word@Work. The stated aim of this service is to encourage people at work to apply the Bible’s teaching to their working lives.[5] Word@Work has garnered praise within the evangelical blogosphere,[6][7] and its readership has grown to 30,000 readers worldwide (as at April 2011).[8]
