Light Project Peterborough

About

The Vision of Light Project Peterborough is: To reveal Jesus’ love by reaching out to and walking alongside the marginalised and those in need and by equipping and enabling those we meet to do the same. We do this by:

  • Sharing our Christian faith, by meeting people wherever they are
  • Co-operative social action and mission
  • Providing shelter and support for the homeless
  • Working in partnership with others
  • Modelling a loving community where everyone is valued
  • Communicating stories of good news

Our History In 2009 Baptist minister Chris Duffett started working with the church in Peterborough to reveal the love of Jesus to shoppers in the city centre. In partnership with Churches Together in Central Peterborough a small group of city centre chaplains were formed. This exciting and inspirational work received a warm welcome from many in the city, continued to grow, and the charity Light Project Peterborough was formally registered with the Charity Commission in 2015. This has lead onto exciting projects such as the Peterborough Winter Night Shelter and The Garden House day centre for the homeless and with 2019 seeing the 10 year anniversary of our work Light Project Peterborough has become a well respected and loved charity by many across the Peterborough area.
