Trefor was working as an engineer when he was radically saved at the age of twenty eight. He married Jade in June 1998 and their family has since grown to include 3 boys and a girl. Trefor and Jade became passionate about the vision and priorities of Living Light church and joined in 2003. They spent 4 years working into Living Light Kenosha and Racine before returning to the UK in 2010. They have since been involved in the growing work in Wellington.
Ben became a Christian when he was twenty-two and spent much of his church life involved with traditional churches. He responded to the call of God to join Living Light Taunton in 2004, a year after the church was planted, and was appointed as an elder in October 2006. Ben has worked as an Environmental Adviser to farmers in Somerset for 17 years and was released to work part-time for the church in 2007. He still continues his farm advisory work on a part-time basis. He and his wife Angela have five children and live in Wellington.
Our homegroups are small groups, ranging in size from 10 to 20 people, that meet once a week in the evening. In the informal atmosphere of the home, we can talk about what God is teaching us (individually and corporately), study the Bible, pray together, worship God in song, support and encourage one another, help with practical needs . . . the list goes on!
The Vision and Commitment Course (V&C) is a 20-week class that explores what Living Light Christian Church believes (our vision) and how we outwork what we believe together (our commitment to the vision). Though particularly for those who are thinking of joining us as a congregation, the course is open to anyone. Whether you are a new believer in Christ, have known the Lord for many years or are simply searching for truth, we know that what’s presented in this course has all the potential to transform your life radically to the glory of God.
After our corporate worship time on Sunday mornings, crèche is provided for infants and toddlers, and classes are available for ages 3-14. A dedicated team, led by Sarah Entwistle and Hannah Izzett, works with the children and provides a diverse programme of teaching, worship, prayer and discipleship.
The youth group meets weekly on Thursday nights, 7:30pm at The Taunton Church Building on Gipsy Lane. Anyone aged 13-18 is welcome. For more information, please contact the youth leaders – Chris & Marie Izzett, John and Marie Myers, or Dave and Sarah Ledger – at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We believe the visible unity of the church is so important to God as we see expressed in the prayer of Jesus in John 17:
My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one: I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.
We want to see the people of Wellington come to know Jesus and believe that the oneness of the church in our town is essential to this. We are therefore committed to making every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit. This involves serving, honouring and blessing the other 9 expressions of the Christian church in the town and partnering with them in the gospel of Jesus Christ. We meet regularly with the leaders from the following churches:
Rockwell Green Christian Fellowship
Wellington Baptist Church
All Saints Rockwell Green
Wellington Methodist Church
Wellington United Reformed Church
Church of St John the Baptist Wellington
Some of the current expressions of unity include, weekly small prayer meetings for some, monthly leaders’ meetings, quarterly town wide prayer gatherings, joint worship, joint outreach into the town as well as partnering together in caring for the poor and Street Pastors. We are all very involved in and committed to working together through Churches Together in Wellington and District, this enables us to work together in large scale outreaches in the town.
