The next meeting of the LifeLight local support group is on Saturday 6th July at 7.30 p.m. in Cromer. Please contact us for details. LifeLight is the new name for Cromer Beach Mission, and all friends and supporters are welcome to come along to pray for this year's event, to help us plan our local support for the team and to strengthen the links between LifeLight and the local churches.

This year, LifeLight takes place between Sunday 25th - when there will be a special celebration of Beach Mission in Cromer - and Friday 30th August. During the week, there will be holiday-club style activities for 3-10 year-olds each morning, all-age fun and games each afternoon and evening events for families and young people. Full details will be available soon.
