Lighthouse London is a vibrant and diverse community, with over 52 nations represented in the fellowship who gather on Sundays with youth and children’s groups. We love opening our building to Holy Trinity for weekly worship and special school events.
The Lighthouse London Community Trust consistently puts vulnerable children and youth at the heart of their work; exemplified by their partnership with Spear Camden. More recently they have pioneered a partnership with youth work charity XLP, with a special focus on mentoring young people at risk of expulsion in Camden and Islington.
