Spreading the gospel through partnering with people and organisations 'on the ground' in communities that need Jesus
Bright Lights Learning Centre
In 2019 Pastor Simon and Cindy visited Bright Lights Learning Center in Manila Philippines. This centre was started in 2003 in the slum areas of Manila to provide an education for young people aged between 12-20 who had no formal education. The school provides intensive education to bring the students up to the point where they can attend regular schools and colleges. The current principal of the school is one of the students who has been through the Bright Lights program, as are other members of staff.
Bright Lights is overseen by Voice of Grace ministries which also runs Threads of Hope, a livelihood project for women to enable them to earn money and also Care Homes for at risk students to live in, to take them out of dangerous and difficult slum conditions. As a result of Pastor Simon’s visit Horizon Church is now sponsoring 2 young sisters to live in the care home while they continue their education. The elder girl is studying a BS Psychology at University while the younger sister is in grade 8 at High School. The church’s sponsorship of them covers their living and transport costs.
As well as the regular monthly support for our global missions, Horizon Church is passionate about our local Weston Creek and broader Canberra Community. Each year we seek to support local and national groups, as well as individuals who might be doing it a bit tough.
We also have a heart to reach the people of Canberra and run events to connect and support the community across Tuggeranong, Woden Valley and Weston Creek.
