Story

'The Church of Jesus Christ is not called to be a cruise ship which is there for the entertainment of its passengers, but rather as a rescue ship to seek and love those battered and bruised by the storms of life. Lighthouse seeks to raise up leaders who can sustainably take a lead role in this missional task and, by example, encourage others to do the same.' Rev'd Jon Swales, 2020


Over the last 6 years Lighthouse has not only demonstrated radical love to those who have been battered and bruised by the storms of life but has also sought to invest time, skills and training into raising up leaders. Working closely with Leeds School of Theology, Leeds Diocese Intern Scheme and St Hild College, we provide theological training and coaching alongside opportunities in which young leaders can develop the skills and tools to equip them for lifelong ministry to those on the margins.


We are currently training up Alice Brencher, who began her journey with us as a volunteer and worked alongside us through the internship scheme. As our current Pastor-in-Training, we seek to offer Alice hands-on experience in a supportive coaching environment as well as providing accredited theological training through St Hild College.

This training includes:

- Grounding in Biblical Studies, Theology and Chruch History (via St Hild's College)
- Trauma-informed understanding of addiction and mental health
- Awareness and opportunities to contribute to strategy
- 1:1 and Small Group Coaching
- Opportunities to lead and preach - with weekly feedback
- An accountable pastoral workload
- Knowledge of pathways in mental health and addiction services and Adult Social Care
- Opportunities to develop existing skills
- Access to Supervision and a designated line manager, opportunities to go on retreat. (We are looking for sustainable life long ministry.)


Alice says the following,

Lighthouse (West Yorkshire)

Lighthouse is a fresh expression of church which seeks to share the love of Jesus with those who have been battered and bruised by the storms of life.
