Faith and Light

The Province of 

the Northern Lights 

 




Faith and Light is a Christian association that includes people with learning disabilities, their families and friends. The Province of the Northern Lights is made up of local Faith and Lights communities. These groups meet regularly, usually every month for...


friendship,   worship  and  celebration.


Faith and Light communities are just as colorful as the title written above. We are people with different abilities, but in one area we are all alike. We all need friends! In a Faith and Light community we are friends who care for each other, and have fun together.


Since the start in 1971 Faith and Light has grown, and at the moment there are 1500 Faith and Light communities, in 80 different countries throughout the world. The counties are divided into 51 provinces. The Province of the Northern Lights consists of Denmark, Estonia, Norway and Sweden.


Each province has a provincial team, and this is our team:
