Lighthouse registration for the summer holidays is now open

Children’s registration for Lighthouse Thame & Villages 2017 is now open. Lots of children have already signed up!!! so please go to www.lighthousethame.org.uk ASAP to register your child.

Make sure you note down your special reference number at the end of the booking and you should receive a confirmation of your registration by email on the same day.

Lighthouse Thame is a holiday week for children and young people in Thame and the surrounding area that takes place in the summer holidays at Thame Showground.

It is run through a partnership of local churches and supported by hundreds of experienced volunteers. Lighthouse provides an opportunity for children and young people to learn more about God’s amazing love for us all and understand what difference Jesus can make to our lives. Our objective is to create a safe, fun and enjoyable environment for everyone.

The Lighthouse format is simple. At the start and finish of each day we gather everyone together in the main marquee for fun activities, competitions, games, songs talks and drama etc. The daily gunging of a leader is always great fun and each day the activities close with some great songs with plenty of actions. For the rest of the day children have a programme of games, craftwork and creative times plus a year-group session to explore the day’s theme.

They want everybody to feel welcome and promote the following values:

  • Acceptance
  • Unbounded patience
  • Fair discipline
  • Lots of love
  • And, of course, lots of Fun

Lighthouse History

Lighthouse was started in Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire in 1987 when a group of Christians from local Churches decided to arrange some fun activities for children and young people during the school summer holidays. The event was a resounding success and well over 350 children attended this initial event.

Lighthouse has since gone from strength to strength with thousands of children attending events across the county. Lighthouse Thame was first launched in 2008 in the Thame showground.
