Duke of Edinburgh- Copyright :Press Association

It has been announced by Buckingham Palace that His Royal Highness Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh has died.

The Rt Revd Martin Seeley, Bishop of the Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich, paid tribute to Prince Philip on behalf of the Diocese’s 630,000 residents and more than 450 parishes.

“Prince Philip has been the most remarkable consort to Her Majesty, making the role his own through his distinctive style, intelligence and wit. He has been the Queen’s constant strength and guide through over seven decades of public service. Our thoughts are with his family as we keep them very much in our prayers. May he rest in peace and rise in glory”.

What is Lightwave?      

Lightwave is ...

... a Christian community, meeting in small groups in homes, pubs, offices, schools and other places which works alongside more traditional ways of doing church. 

Lightwave is ...

... committed to shining the light of Jesus in Suffolk through acts of kindness and practical service as well as worship and witness. 

Lightwave does ...

... the essential things of church - but in different ways, suited to the needs of their members and the context of a small group who get to know each other well.

Lightwave groups ...

... eat together and have fun, pray, support each other and try to put faith to work in practical care for friends and those who need it in our community.  Each group is part of the wave of God’s love bringing light to our county.
