We believe its important to continue this to be the best steward of our online family. Online gatherings has been an incredible opportunity for all of us to take hold of in this time. Kids online resources will also remain online.

Station PM gathering & Lighthouse Life streams

We have decided to not re-start our 6pm station gathering straight away. Rather replace it for Winter and Spring 2020, with ‘Lighthouse Life Streams’ starting August 2nd. We feel like one of the things that God is putting a spotlight on for our church now is to continue to create space for discipleship and development to occur. With that in mind please we are exciting to offer various life streams that we can be apart of. They will be vibrant, fun environments with food, time to discuss and get together. These will be covid safe envionments as our gatherings are For registration details and exact streams that will be offered, please watch this space over the next week.

If you have been a regular part of our 6pm gathering. We would love to personally help you integrate to one of our other gatherings or touch points through the week.
