About Us

The Lighthouse church was started in 1996 by the seniors leaders Phil and Heather Read.  At that time there were just a few families meeting in their home. The church grew quickly and moved to Lytchett Matravers Primary School later that year.  After a few years the church moved to Lytchett Minster School to take advantage of a bit more space and then in 2009 we moved to our own building in Holton Heath.

Members come from much of the surrounding area including Lytchett Matravers, Upton, Broadstone and Corfe Mullen (to name but a few).

We believe that the church should make a difference in the region, changing the spiritual atmosphere as it intercedes and worships. And we feel that God wants us to be a blessing to the area. Not taking from it, but contributing towards it.
