Supervised activities in the Leslie room for 3-10 year olds will be provided during the 9.30 service on 30th July, 13th, 20th & 27th August and 3rd September (summer holidays)

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.

In 2017 Lighthouse children are supporting missions at home & overseas.

We support World Vision www.worldvision.org.uk/our-work/  – the world’s largest charity supporting children worldwide. We have yet to decide specifically how to support them but we have close personal links with their board. They empower, educate and support children in their communities by providing sanitation, education, child protection, healthcare and long-term support with native & on the ground employees.

please bring a coin for the collection every week!
