- About Us
The call to "go" reaches beyond the local area and even our nation. We believe that Christians in the West have been blessed with so much, both financially and spiritually, that it is right to sow into other parts of the world that are not so rich.
The Lighthouse has a number of contacts and projects around the world:
UK: We work with other churches in the Poole area and local homeless agency Routes to Roots to provide regular hot meals to the homeless in and around Poole.
JAPAN: Andy Game established an Alpha office in Tokyo and worked with churches throughout Japan to launch the Alpha course. He now works with a multi media team in Yokohama the vision is to see the nation reached with the gospel in a culturally relevant way through film, web and social media. http://7media.org/
