New Life Church was founded on this conviction:
People matter to God; therefore, they matter to us.
Our Vision & Core Values
At New Life Church we will:
- seek to encounter God and be transformed by Him;
- be a united community; renowned for our love
- lift Jesus high so that the world will see Him
Our core values bring clarity to the things that matter most to us at New Life Church.
They guide how we achieve our mission, influencing major leadership decisions as well as everyday ministry plans. They help to keep us focused on the unique call God has given us as a local church in Gt. Cornard.

A Biblical Model of Church Leadership: Throughout the New Testament principles of church leadership point to a central theme - You don't do it alone! As a church we run with Elders, Trustees, Deacons as well as inviting individuals to be part of the wider leadership team for specific roles and their gifting. Alongside this, we employ in line with our vision a Community Pastor with the responsibility to create, invest and lead community.
New Life Church is a ‘Charitable Incorporated Organisation’, which is a relatively new form of legal entity designed for non-profit organisations in the United Kingdom. The trustees are responsible for the governance of the charity, overseeing the legal & financial aspects of the church and ensuring that it operates in line with its charitable objects. The trustees (who are unpaid) have a wide range of relevant experience, fully embrace the vision of the church and work in close partnership with the Leadership Team.
