Following Jesus

We are a community that passionately pursues Jesus in our everyday lives. To do this we actively practice the ways of Jesus, kind of like an apprenticeship to Him.

Our Story

Rachel and Alan Radbourne were sent out from Open Heaven in Loughborough to plant a new community on the beautiful island of Anglesey in North Wales. Having being brought up on the North Wales Coast, Rachel had always felt God stirring in her a passion for the area. After studying and working at Loughborough for 7 years, they felt the time was right to step out and pursue the adventure of planting a modern, relevant expression of church on Anglesey. In December 2017 Lighthouse Church/Capel Goleudy began at Rachel and Alan's kitchen table.

Our Beliefs

  • We believe God is all-powerful, all-knowing, and in all-places. God is Love – the source of all love of the purest kind, and he looks to demonstrate his love in all situations.

  • We believe the Bible is inspired by God and tells the story of his love for and relationship with humanity. God calls us to immerse ourselves in his story, to meditate on and interpret it, and ultimately to live out that story today.

  • We believe there is only one God who is the creator and sustainer of the whole universe and that creation is the expression of his love, creativity and power. God then gave all humans responsibility to look after and care for his creation.

  • We believe the one God exists in relationship as three persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Relationships matter because as ‘three in one’ God himself exists in perfect relationship.

  • We believe every person is unique, special to God and made in His image; full of potential and possibility. When God made humanity, he declared his delight in what he had made.

  • We believe every human messes things up when we live our way, not God's way. This mess [sin] brings about pain, suffering and death on both personal and global levels. All relationships suffer because of this; with God, each other and the earth.

  • We believe, to clear up humanity’s mess, God the Son miraculously became human in Jesus, born of Mary, and showed us what God is truly like and how to live. Through his life, sacrificial death and resurrection, Jesus defeated the power of evil, sin and death, offering us all forgiveness and therefore the chance to have a right relationship with God, each other and God’s Creation.

  • We believe God sends his Spirit on us as followers of Jesus. His Spirit lives within us, makes us know we are his children, gives us spiritual gifts, shows us when we go wrong and makes being like Jesus possible.

  • We believe the Church is the people of God drawn from many different traditions and denominations that God has commissioned to show his love to those in need, make disciples of Jesus, baptise those who believe and share communion.

  • We believe there is more to come when Jesus returns as Judge and King of this world. When he comes again he will bring an end to all injustice, pain, suffering and death and renew the earth and heavens.
