The ongoing Lightwave Community was begun as part of the Growing in God in the Countryside Project,  funded by the Church Commissioners from 2019-2024.  The project aims to enable rural communities to flourish, and we believe this is God’s calling for the church in the Suffolk countryside. 

The vision is:

  • To make and grow new disciples and disciple-making leaders in the countryside, especially through the small groups of the Lightwave Community
  • For our church culture and structures to be continually shaped for and by mission so that God's mission continues to flourish in the countryside in a mixed economy of different kinds of rural forms of church.
  • For our rural environments to be transformed for good as Jesus is made visible through the loving service of God's people in the countryside

 The main carrier of the vision is the Lightwave Community, which shines God's light through small groups.

Growing in God in the Countryside is part of the wider Diocesan Vision for Growing in God.  More details of the Diocesan vision can be found on the Diocesan Website here
