Welcome to new things in Marlow Bottom. We are a bunch of Christians in Marlow Bottom who are trying to build a community that finds new horizons in the light of Christ. To find out what we mean by that, do explore this website. Or better still, come and meet us at one of our events.
Whether you are new to the church and are beginning to explore what Christianity is all about, or have been a church member somewhere else for years, you are warmly welcomed to The Lantern. We are particularly focused on serving families in Marlow Bottom but welcome everyone to be part of the Lantern community.
The Lantern community is found in a number of different places and times doing a number of different things. So keep an eye on this website to find out what is going on. Better still, send us an email (see contact details below) and we will add you to our regular mailing list and keep you informed of all that is going on. You can also join our Facebook Group to be kept up to date.
Before the Lantern Church was formed, the Anglican team in Marlow had been working with St Mary’s Church to discern from God His will for the Anglican Church in Marlow Bottom. This brought them together with the Methodists at The Chapel in Marlow Bottom and some of the other Churches in Marlow. Together the decision was made to find someone to plant a new church that would particularly serve the families of Marlow Bottom. In October 2014, Sami and Graham Watts were jointly appointed for this task. The story had begun.
