Developing a Lightwave Group

Lightwave is a community of small groups reaching out with Christ’s love all over Suffolk.



Why start a Lightwave group in your Benefice?

  • Small groups make a great context to grow as followers of Jesus and be “on mission” with Him – as the first disciples were
  • Small group are flexible and able to respond to missional need quickly - reaching different parts of your local community in different ways
  • Lightwave groups work alongside parish churches big and small, complementing the offering of a Sunday service with small midweek gatherings, in homes, cafes, workplaces or online.  For some this is an more accessible way-in to Christian life than a church service
  • There is lots of support on hand in the Lightwave Community to help you to release and nurture the gifts of your group members, helping you all to share God’s love in your locality in the ways you are dreaming of.
