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 John Edwards will be speaking. We are also delighted to have special guest Jake Isaac leading us in worship.

Midweek Devotional

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.

Staff & News Update

Our pre-school re-opened on Tuesday in a limited capacity and with a smaller staff team. As a leadership we are beginning to pray and plan for how we as a church begin the journey out of lockdown.  

There are also some staff changes taking place:

Pre-School
Pauline Hiscox has returned from furlough.
Izzy Nichols is now on furlough.

Pastoral Team
David & Pauline Fellowes have returned from furlough.
Les Petken is now on furlough. 
Tim Coales, one of the long serving elders is taking a break for a while. Tim’s work and furloughed staff’s work will be covered by the rest of the working pastoral team.

Please pray for God’s continued blessing & wisdom on New Life at this time.

Pastoral Care

Our pastoral team are in the process of directly contacting every family and individual connected with New Life. If you haven’t heard from us yet and would welcome the opportunity of speaking with one of our pastoral team please contact Kofi Sunu.

Please also continue to contact us with your prayer requests and testimonies.
