Firstly we would like to honour Edith and Graham Hardy for responding to the Holy Spirit and birthing Light House Church and running it for over three years. Since they have stepped down from leadership they have overseen us and and been our apostolic covering. Edith and Graham have now moved on and with their blessing we have asked Christine and Andrew Leakey to take on this responsibility. Chris and Andrew live in Poole, have four children and seven grandchildren. They are both fully equipped to take on this responsibility. They both have wonderful hearts for people. Andrew has ministered internationally in Venezuela, E. Africe, USA and UK building up life long relationships. Chris has a wonderful pastoral heart and enjoys meeting up with family, friends and neighbours to be a listening ear. We are blessed and very thankful to them for taking on this commitment.
