Getting here

Welcome to The Lighthouse Church We are a child-friendly church where children and young people are welcome and an integral part of our family.

Lighthouse Family Service (Sunday 11am) is a lively and informal worship service incorporating sung worship, prayer, scripture readings and bible teaching in family-friendly, relevant ways. Children go to their own teaching groups during the sermon.
Little Stars: pre-school / Lighthouse Kids @11: primary age / Fusion: 11+

Traditional Anglican service of Holy Communion (Sunday 9:15am), like all our services this features excellent in-depth Bible teaching designed to encourage, challenge and build people up in the Christian faith. Everyone is welcome; young or old or just young in heart. If you prefer a more traditional, Anglican approach then this is for you. The service is followed by refreshments and a time to relax. Please note that, although all our Services are aimed at being family friendly and inclusive of children and families, there is no separate provision for children and young people during this service.

Messy Church is a way of being church for families involving fun; is found across the world and has values that are about being Christ-centred, for all ages, based on creativity, hospitality and celebration. Come and join us for food, fun and all age activities on the fourth Saturday of every other month.

Lighthouse Kids (primary age children) normally runs as part of our Sunday morning family service at 11am.

Our services are informal and relaxed. We no longer sit in pews but together with our families and friends around cafe style tables so that everyone can feel at home.
