Passports :-    to enable the learning and exploring to continue at home, 24-7, we provide a take home sheet with ideas for the whole family. These are stored in a personalised passport together with the programme for the term, contact details and photographs of the leaders! Parents’ engagement with their child will extend the Lighthouse session and impact their child’s faith journey & life skills. It is the choice of the family whether to use these tools – they are to support & encourage and a record of their attendance.
