A Generation is Emerging
Our desire is to see young people established and secure in their relationship with Jesus and able to share their faith with their friends and family. We long to see a generation of young believers who are grounded in God’s word and who, through the power of the Holy Spirit, are able to truly influence the world in which they live.
In order to achieve these goals we work together with other Christian churches in the town, sharing resources, running joint ventures and supporting and encouraging one another. (LINK to Soul Connect) We also run our own smaller groups on a Sunday morning and various mid week group aimed at building friendships and developing understanding.
Young people at New Life are encouraged to get involved with various aspects of church life such as attending prayer meetings, helping with children’s work, setting up or clearing away chairs in the Hall and being a part of the worship group.
