The Light Project is a diverse group of people with a big heart to let others have a real experience of Jesus!
Most people in the UK have no real idea whatsoever why Jesus came, what he did and what change he can bring. So we work with churches and other groups to dream up and encourage others to find ways of making Jesus the talk of the town: we run and support a variety of projects from outreach to people who are homeless to evangelism courses, from schools work to street art, from city centre chaplaincy to youth clubs, from preaching to urban festivals. Over the past 16 years we have grown from one person serving people who are homeless on the streets of Chester to a growing Network of teams across the UK who long for others to connect with the good news of Jesus.
Who’s behind it?
The Light Project College is led by Glyn Jones who is, an ordained Anglican Priest.
‘Evangelism has for too long, been neglected in academic circles – for me, the simplicity and wonder of the Good News of Jesus should always go hand in hand with a rich creativity and the wisdom of an enquiring and curious mind.
Life with this God for me is intricately simple and simply intricate – it makes me smile and cry at the same time and I want others to have a chance at least to experience this God -my work here is an attempt to encourage and inspire as many people to meet God fully and introduce others to him in as many ways as there are days.
The College gathers students from all ages and backgrounds and forms a melting pot of creativity, intellectual and spiritual development. It sets out to find the most effective ways of letting people in on the secret of Jesus and then sends them out to deliver and equip others to do the same.’
