Thank you all for joining our Online Lighthouse service. Today’s Lighthouse is about messages from angels, but more about our ability to acknowledge, to see, to understand these messages, about our ability to connect more with God! We are going to challenge our thinking with Emily; we are going to hear lovely and very familiar songs that we can join in; we could make lovely angel wings glasses; and finally, we can join together in prayers. 

But first, we join together to say our prayer for growth

We open our service with our first worship song, ‘My Lighthouse’, performed by "The Rend Collective"Click here to join in.
