Support for Lighthouse 2021
10th May, 2021
The year's Lighthouse will look different this year from last year and other years. Lighthouse Central provided great content last year, but this year we would like to involve more of the Great Missenden Lighthouse family with ideas and content to run virtual Lighthouse 2021.
The theme this year is HOPE.
The programme we are planning includes:
- An 'open air Lighthouse style picnic' for all the family on the Buryfield on the afternoon of Sunday 25th July
- Daily Bible exploration via online videos - we call it Discovery
- Daily mainstage drama, via online videos
- Craft packs with an age-appropriate selection of our best crafts for the week available for collection, with full instructions, video demonstrations and a daily craft surgery on the Buryfield to sort out any problems
- A village 'story' trail around Great Missenden for you and your family to participate in together
- Sporting challenges for you to complete at home each day
- Lighthouse Youth events (14+ years) every evening in the Memorial Hall and available online
Can you help us?
Do you have the skills and desires to help us with any of these? We are looking for people with a variety of skills to be involved and help run another great Lighthouse week:
- Video editing
- Being in front of camera
- Craft prep
- Hosting and supporting prayer sessions
- Preparing posters and leaflets
- Social media expertise
- Set up / marshalling / parking for the picnic event (details tbc)
- Suggesting other ideas!
Do you have any of these items which could be donated to help the craft team out?
- Freezer bags (or equivalent)
- Supermarket shopping bags
- Small airtight pots holding between 100ml and 250ml
- Empty, clean, cylindrical tubs (e.g. bisto gravy granules, cocoa powder etc) - diameter between 7cm and 8.5cm
Please email us with any ideas that you think might enhance the Great Missenden Lighthouse experience this year or any key skills which will enable this year to be brought together. Any help will be greatly appreaciated.
Registration for children’s craft packs, and for evening teen events is essential and will open in early June 2021.
