About Lighthouse Beaconsfield

Unfortunately, Lighthouse Beaconsfield is unable to run in 2024. We plan to be back in 2025.

What is Lighthouse?

A Christian holiday club that gets the summer holidays off to a great start.  Lighthouse began in Great Missenden and Prestwood in 1987. There are now 15 Lighthouses - Burnham, Cressex, Great Missenden, Haddenham, Hazlemere, High Wycombe, Langley, Loudwater, Mansfield, Marlow, Princes Risborough, Safe Harbour (was Bourne End),  Shelswell, Water Eaton (was Bletchley South) and of course, Beaconsfield!

What goes on at Lighthouse?

At the start and finish of the day we join together for worship, teaching, drama, competitions, etc. In between children have a programme of games and craft, plus sessions to explore the day's theme. 

Where and when?

Unfortunately, Lighthouse Beaconsfield is unable to run in 2024

What are the timings?

Registration at 9.15 am and collection at 2.10 pm. This applies to ALL age groups.

Who is in charge of the children?

Lighthouse is run by volunteers.  Children are in year-groups, which are broken down into smaller Lighthouse groups. Each Lighthouse has a Lighthouse Keeper (leader) and Lamplighters (assistants). Specialist teams help with craft and games. We take up references for all helpers and police check adults.


Year groups are based on a child's age on 31 August. If you ask in advance, it may be possible for a child to join a younger age group to be with a friend or sibling. 

Children with special needs

We welcome applications for children with special needs. We will do all we can to accommodate such applications but in order to ensure the appropriate support is in place it is essential that you tell us well in advance if your child has additional help at school or has an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP).

How much does it cost?

To run Lighthouse Beaconsfield costs £50 for each child. (which we think is fabulous value!).

Although we do not charge a set amount for children to attend, (as we do not want to deny any child a place) we do rely upon your donations and those of local churches, businesses and other generous benefactors so Lighthouse can continue each year.  Details of how you can support Lighthouse Beaconsfield will be sent with tickets and you can look at our donations page. Donate here

We want to provide a great experience for your child. Please support us. Every donation, great or small, makes a difference. Thank you!

What happens next?

Volunteer registration will open in March

Only volunteers' children, grandchildren or volunteers’ younger siblings are guaranteed places. After this, places are given on a first come, first served basis. We will write to you in late June as soon as we have allocated places.

Lighthouse Beaconsfield is a registered charity No. 1198953
