WHAT ARE LIGHT GROUPS?

Light Groups are an integral part of The Homeless Pastors Outreach programme. It is a tried-and-tested model of community group that tackles isolation and gets people back into the community. They deal with the spiritual and emotional burdens that members may be facing by exploring issues such as forgiveness and thankfulness. They are a place where people can encounter the love of Jesus and respond to the good news of The Gospel.

'COMING TO THE GROUP IS HELPING ME FIND PEACE OUT OF CHAOS. IN THE GROUP DISCUSSIONS, EVERYONE CONTRIBUTES HONESTLY AND THERE'S A REAL SENSE OF FAMILY. I'M JUST BEGINNING TO DISCOVER THAT GOD LOVES ME.'

RECOVERY JOURNEY

In order to develop a strong faith in God, people need to build new foundations away from alcoholism and drug use. In addition, many people suffer from severe mental health related issues. The Light Group understands and appreciates these challenges and works with individuals to leave chaos behind and experience peace in supportive communities. 

We use existing recovery resources and discussion points to help people maintain their journey but also consider rehabilitation and a life without drink and drugs. 

We encourage people to further access church and work with local church leaders to develop constructive pathways.

'I LEAD THE HALIFAX LIGHT GROUP, AND IT IS ONE OF THE BEST THINGS I HAVE EVER DONE. I SEE PEOPLE AT THEIR LOWEST BEGIN TO DEVELOP RELATIONSHIPS, LEAVE CHAOS AND DEVELOP THE LIFE SKILLS AND UNDERSTANDING TO LEAD A HEALTHY, FAITH-FILLED LIFE. THERE ARE NO QUICK SOLUTIONS, ONLY A DETERMINATION TO JOURNEY WITH PEOPLE THROUGH THICK AND THIN'.
