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.”
