ROY SCARSBROOK IS PREACHING TODAY 15 July

Roy was Pastor and co-elder at the Lighthouse from 1974 to 1983 and his work here is still remembered with gratitude. After serving at East Ham Baptist Church and in Poland and points East he is now (semi-)retired and living in Kent.

Sundays – 10.30 am

Sunday mornings are our main time each week to gather around Christ, sing songs old and new, and pray together.  Our sermons usually follow a series based on reading through a book of the Bible.  We are currently looking at the central event of human history, the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus, in Luke's gospel.  At the end of the message we have an opportunity for questions and comment.  

Older children usually stay in the main meeting, but for younger ones there is a creche or Bible class with some lively activities according to their age. 

The first Sunday in each month is our family communion, when we celebrate the Lord's Supper as part of the main meeting.

On Sundays, come to the main entrance on Brock Place. 

Midweek meetings:

House groups – Bible study and prayer

On Tuesday evenings we are tracing themes through John's Gospel, currently looking at the "signs" that Jesus performed.  We are learning what the signs point to about him, and about true faith. 

On Thursday evenings we are currently having a series of discussions on the topic of money. 

Come to Coral's house in Stepney on Tuesday, or Musa and Ruth's in Ilford on Thursday. If you do not know the route, contact Erik or one of the hosts for directions.

We also have time for prayer in these meetings.  

Daytime meeting

We also have a Bible study discussion open to everyone, on Thursday mornings at 11. For these (and the Saturday meetings), come to the church hall entrance on Maddams St.  

Parent and Toddlers Group – Wednesday 10am till 12 noon

Every Wednesday in term time (including half-term holidays), we get out our large play equipment, toy cars and trikes, games and activities in a clean space to enjoy them. Please tell anyone with young children that the P & T group is up and running. 

Saturday prayer

At 9 a.m. each Saturday several of us gather to pray. We cover a wide range of persons and situations, and this meeting is probably one of the most important of the week – an hour talking to God, and agreeing together on what we ask Him to do. 

Saturday music practice

Every Saturday we practise music, singing, drumming and percussion, from 10.15am until about 11.30.  This is when we choose our songs for Sunday together. 

Weekend away?

Some of us like the idea of having a church weekend away together. What would be the best ideas for a theme or activities?

People have been having a good think about what they would like us to include in such a trip. It is not too late to give us your opinions.
