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

This Sunday

Join us this Sunday at 10am on YouTube for our online service where Ian will be doing the second part of his teaching on ‘Money & Giving.’ If you missed last week’s teaching, you can watch it on YouTube here and find the notes here. Notes for this week will be available on the sermons page from 9:15am on Sunday. 


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!

New this week!

As well as our regular Sunday services, we are beginning this week to broadcast mid-week devotionals in our Facebook group and on the church online page. This Wednesday, David Lilley will be sharing an encouraging word on prayer.

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. Click below to share with us, in as much or as little detail as you choose.

Staff update 

A number of our staff team are already on furlough, and this Monday they will be joined by three more staff members, for an initial period of three weeks.
Stephen Bryars – Youth team
Christian Sana – Connect Groups
Ian James – Pastoral team
In their absence the point of contact is Mark Rossell (Youth team & Connect Groups) and Kofi Sunu (Pastoral team)

National Prayer Meeting this Sunday at 8pm

Join Hundreds of Christians from across the Uk to Pray for our Towns and Cities during this time of crisis. Christians from all traditions will be joining from their homes across the UK to seek a move of God for the transformation of our towns and cities.
