About Beacon of Hope

 Beacon of Hope is a non-denominational, independent, Christian church on Martha's Vineyard.  It was started in 2014 by a group of believers in Jesus who were called to start a new fellowship for Islanders and visitors alike.

After setting an excellent foundation  Rev. Don Bradley retired as the lead pastor.  Rev. Greg Bar has returned to the Island to pastor the church.  He is joined by Associate Pastor Rev. John McCormick who helped found Beacon of Hope.
As a body of believers we are committed to following Jesus and walking as He walked in loving our neighbors, caring for those in need, studying His word, worshipping and praying together, and growing in His grace and wisdom. 

We welcome all people to join us, even if you aren't sure that church is for you.  We want to share Christ's love and freedom with you.

Contact us, reach out on facebook, or drop in (in person or online) to any of our meetings.

“I am the light of the world. 

Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness,

but will have the light of life."

"In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven."

Jesus Christ
(Gospel of John 8:12 and Gospel of Matthew 5:16)
