Bible resources

Our favourite online resource for Bible study is called “Bible Hub”. Just type into your browser bar or phone. It is not cluttered with inappropriate ads and is provided free of charge. (They even ask people NOT to donate). It has all you would expect and quite a lot you might not expect on a free site. It is great for finding those half-remembered bible quotes.

For audio recordings of Bible readings, we recommend Bible Gateway. This has recordings of many Bible translations, including straight or dramatised recordings of the NIV or KJV, and the updated NIV read by David Suchet. 

For some excellent videos introducing each book of the Bible, and various related topics, see TheBibleProject on YouTube.


Links to other churches, organisations, etc

The Lighthouse is affiliated to the Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches (FIEC).

As of 2021, we are delighted the life of the Lighthouse is being renewed through a new partnership with Tower Hamlets Community Church (THCC), another independent local church based in Bow, Poplar and the Isle of Dogs.  THCC is affiliated to the Assemblies of God. 

Some other nearby churches that we are particularly close to are:
