Women's Breakfast Saturday 8th June
8.00 - 9.30.
Speaker Josh Fortune
After being forced to leave the Army through injury, Josh's life was in a mess.
Blaming God for his sufferings, he began to fall away from his faith.
Out of the blue Josh was offered a job as a cameraman in Afghanistan. Seizing the chance to get real excitement and adventure Josh took the job and was thrust into 3 years at war.
He experienced fear, friendship, combat, and love. Above all, God used the literal desert experience to bring Josh back to him in this gripping tale of a Christian at war.

Thame Showground, Kingsey Road, Thame, OX9 3JL
Lighthouse Thame is a holiday week for children and young people in Thame and the surrounding area that takes place in the summer holidays at Thame Showground. It is run through a partnership of local churches and supported by hundreds of volunteers. Lighthouse provides an opportunity for children and young people to learn more about God’s amazing love for us all and understand what a difference Jesus makes to our lives. This is provided in a safe, fun and enjoyable environment for everyone.
The Lighthouse format is simple. At the start and finish of each day we gather everyone together in the main marquee for fun activities, competitions, games and songs. The daily gunging of a leader is always great fun and each day the activities close with some great songs involving plenty of actions.
For the rest of the day children have a programme of games, craft and creative times plus a year-group discovery session involving a drama and a short talk from the Bible that explores
the day's theme.
