You are welcome, whatever your story.
You are welcome, whether you are visiting the area, looking to join a church or just wanting to be somewhere safe, where you can relax and take a breath.
We believe that it is important to be in community, and that when we meet together, we encounter God in a real way that affects and changes how we live.
At New Life Church we seek to do that in two ways…
Church: which is our Sunday morning meeting, where we come together as a big family to learn, share, be challenged and encourage each other.
Community: is all the rest… we believe that we called to walk the journey of faith together, throughout the week we have different activities that support community and invest [disciple*] into people.
*Disciple: What is it… it is someone that looks to Jesus for his wisdom, guidance and direction. Jesus detailed and demonstrated what it meant to be a disciple and asks us today… to do the same, to be a committed learner and imitator of Jesus.
We want to welcome you to join us on Sundays, were we spend the first part of the service together being family; sharing stories, singing songs and learning from each other. This is followed by the kids, young people and adults moving into their own groups, for relevant reaching that's tied into your everyday life.
We encourage children to be a part of who we are, what we do…. So, we welcome children, however excitable, creative, expressive, or shy! We run a variety of different structured activities: Creche is for the 0-3's with some toys and some structured colouring/stories; Junior Church is for 4 to 11's and Youth is for 12's to 16's where a combination of games, stories and activities are focused around a Bible story or Biblical theme.
We always finish with tea and coffee allowing us to catch up, encourage, welcome new people and pray with people.
