Lifelines Online

Welcome to Lifelines online, our weekly update of everything that is happening at New Life during this continuing season of ‘lockdown.’

This Sunday is ‘Pentecost Sunday’ when we remember and celebrate the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost. Our desire and prayer for you this weekend, is for you to experience a fresh infilling of the Holy Spirit. 

This Sunday

Join us this Pentecost Sunday at 10am on YouTube for our live online service where we are delighted to have Nathanael Edwards speaking to us. Nathanael grew up at New Life and is now part of the leadership team at Life Community Church in Storrington, West Sussex. He also heads up Life Support charity, one of the many missions projects we support. 

Mid-week Devotions

Next Wednesday David Lilley will be bringing us another word of encouragement. The video will be available on Church Online or in our facebook group from 6pm.

Testimonies & Prayer Needs

We love to hear what God has done amongst us and also want to pray for any needs in our church family. Here’s a few testimonies we’ve received recently:

Louise Abrahams, our children’s worker is able to provide “Worship at Home” resources to three local primary schools, St John’s, St Mark’s & Minister. Let’s thank God for this great opportunity.

Margaret & David Rossell are giving thanks as they celebrate 60 years of marriage this Thursday. We pray God’s continual blessing on them!

Wendy Jackson contacted us to say: “I have been so blessed by the online services of which I have watched everyone live. The week Mark Rossell spoke and shared communion I felt a real touch of the Holy Spirit in a wonderful, deep and real way as if I had been in a meeting.”

Oops!

You may have noticed that our online service last Sunday finished a little early… we had a slight technical error which meant we couldn’t continue our service in worship as planned. Apologies things were cut short, and thanks for your patience as we continue to get to grips with this new way of doing things!

Lifelines Online

Welcome to Lifelines Online, our weekly update on everything that’s currently happening at New Life Croydon. As we enter our third month of ‘lockdown’, some of us might be finding it tiring and hard going. We want to remind you of Paul’s encouragement to the Galatian Christians: 

“And let us not grow weary in doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up, so then as we have an opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.”
Gal 6:9-10  

Let’s continue to encourage one another in every way we can. It’s amazing what an encouraging text or phone call can do for the person receiving it. Some of you may also have opportunities to bless & encourage neighbours and work colleagues! Let’s continue to do good!

This Sunday

Join us this Sunday at 10am for our online service where Ian James will speaking. Ian’s notes will be available on the sermons page of our website just before the service starts, so feel free to follow along as Ian shares part one of a two-part series on money and giving

Lifelines Online

Welcome to our latest edition of Lifelines Online!

At the beginning of March, just before the Coronavirus crisis we announced plans to move to having one Sunday morning service from Easter, so that we could come together as a church family. Things obviously haven’t turned out as we expected, with us now meeting online in our homes. However despite the many challenges the current situation is presenting to us as a church, there is a growing sense that in many ways we are becoming more connected as we reach out to one another and come together in new ways.

Our desire is that everyone who considers New Life Croydon to be their spiritual home will feel loved, cared for and increasingly connected as we move forward together. Please read below for two exciting new initiatives to help us stay connected as a church family!

Staying Connected

We‘re introducing a new initiative to help us all stay more connected with one another in this season.

Open House Online Connect Groups:  We know that many of you are now meeting online with your Connect Group. However, we do know that there are people who aren’t part of a Connect Group and others, who would welcome the opportunity to meet up midweek on Zoom with others from their New Life family, just to catch up, enjoy fellowship and pray together. If you would like to be a part of one of these new Open House Online Connect Groups please contact us here and we will send you more details.

This Sunday

Join us this Sunday morning at 10am for our live online service where Christian Sana will be speaking. Christian helps co-ordinate our Connect Groups and also leads worship at New Life.

Online Activities 

Our Sunday services take place on YouTube and most of our other meetings and activities take place on Zoom. If you would like to join one of these meetings, please visit the ‘church online’ page of our website where you can find details of each leader to contact.

As we move into our second month of being an online community, we want to thank you all for your encouraging and appreciative comments regarding our online services. We’re grateful for hearing stories of people being blessed, encouraged and healed as they’ve watched the services.

We now also have children’s ministry, youth ministry, prayer meetings and many of our Connect Groups meeting online, and as we move forward we’ll be introducing more ways for you to stay connected with your church family.
