A Warm Welcome
Where and When
We meet in person at 10.30am and online through Youtube from around 11am when we stream the teaching. Normally, for your first visit, we have recommended arriving 10-15 minutes early to ensure you get a parking space and find somewhere to sit before the service begins. When you arrive, you should be greeted by someone on our Welcome Team and given a Welcome Pack with information about New Life.
We normally serve tea, coffee and biscuits from at the end of the service as it's a great way to meet people, or simply take time to find your bearings.
Plan your journey:
Open Google Maps
Accessibility: There is wheelchair access, and a sound loop for anyone who needs it. Please let one of the Welcome Team know on your arrival and they will help you to get set up. There are disabled toilets in the main foyer.
Normally our service begins with a warm welcome from one of our team members and then lots of engaging activities during the next 1 hour or so that the service lasts.
We often have lots of engagement and involvement from all ages in the church and all our different cultures. Sometimes a person might pray out loud or read a small passage from the bible and one of our leaders will then give a message that is based on the bible and one that we can apply to our everyday life.
What about my kids?
Usually we have involve all the church family in an interactive programme often led by Community Pastor, Kerry Murray who can be contacted by mobile on 07810 120896 or on the church office number 01293 512574 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org
During the times on Sundays their will be a suitable activity pack and also on occasions the children leave the main building to do activities such as play games, do crafts, sing songs and learn about Jesus. We also have a midweek club for Primary School aged children which runs fortnightly called "Cosmic Comets".
Relevant Children's workers are DBS checked.
We know how hard it can be for you and your kids to be part of a new group, so please do contact us if you have any questions about our children's work.
The kids group activities vary depending on the age but usually there is a friendly welcome, bible stories, testimonies, praying, music, craft, drama, fun games and free play.
While Sundays are a great way to meet new people, it is often in smaller gatherings that you can really get to know someone. Being part of one of our small groups allows you to make new friends, share together and support each other. We have a variety of groups that meet throughout the week, some afternoons and some evenings. Check out Small Groups and see if there’s one that you could join, or we can put you in touch with a small group leader who will be more than happy to invite you along to their group.
