NEWS :: Lighthouse - our newest Worship Community

On Saturday two of our Local Missional Leaders, Jes and Sam Rusling, their team and St James' CofE Primary School launched Lighthouse, a new Worship Community based in the school aimed at engaging parents and families in Christ-centred community.

The school is firmly grounded on its Christian ethos and does well at helping their children engage with faith and meet Jesus but spotted that they were failing to engage with their parents. Headteacher Mrs Moore contacted Church Wigan to invite us to build a new Worship Community at the school to get parents involved.

Lighthouse launched on Saturday with a party on the school field involving BBQ, prayer activities, giant art, a live band, face painting and more. Lots of families came and enjoyed the afternoon, and were invited to come on Tuesday. 

Lighthouse is more than a meeting on a Tuesday, it's about building community and will involve getting together in groups throughout the week, prayer gatherings, and social action.
