Working with the Wider Community
Please take a look at our community projects:
The Crypt and the Community Youth Worker project inspire young people to meet and engage, and give them a safe space to do both. Under All Saints Church (by the bridge) the Crypt Cafe is offering a range of clubs and activities for young people in school years 7-13 (aged 11-19).
Lighthouse is a very popular holiday club for children, run for one week during the summer holidays.
Lighthouse was started in Great Missenden in 1987, since then it has spread and ‘daughter’ Lighthouses now run in surrounding areas, including Marlow. Lighthouse is an ecumenical Christian enterprise.
Children of other faiths, or no faith are welcome to attend.
The day at Lighthouse starts with children arriving at 10am and being taken to their Lighthouse group where they will have a few minutes to catch up with the friends they have made during the week. An energetic worship session sets the scene for the rest of the day.
The rest of the day is broken up into short sessions where children will take part in organised activities including drama, sport, craft, teaching and 'Mainstage' fun and worship. Each group will do each type of activity every day, supervised by an adult Lighthouse Keeper and one or more teenage Lamplighters. The Lighthouse day ends at 3.30pm.
In 1995 a link was established between the Marlow Team Ministry and St James, Galeshewe.
Galeshewe is a black township in the outer suburbs of Kimberley and has about 70,000 inhabitants some of whom are reasonably comfortably off and well housed but many live in shacks. You can find out more about this relationship here.
