Lighthouse is a non-residential week long holiday club for children run by Christians from local churches working together, bringing churches and communities together around children. We are passionate about seeing children from all walks of life and abilities encountering God in a fun-filled week with teaching, sport, craft, performing arts and music.
Many people describe Lighthouse as 'the best week of the summer holidays'. We welcome children of school age from 5 to 11 (Reception to Year 6). Some Lighthouses also run half or full day programmes for 4 years olds - please take a look at each Lighthouse's details under Find My Lighthouse.
Lighthouses are staffed and run entirely by volunteers.
There are 12 active Lighthouses mostly in the South East of England. Together they reach over 5,000 children and involve 3,000 volunteers. Each Lighthouse operates as a separate charity.
Lighthouse Central is the umbrella organisation that provides all the central services for existing Lighthouses and vision to take the Lighthouse movement to new locations by helping new Lighthouses start up.
Lighthouse Central has a full time salaried Director and a group of volunteers and Trustees.
