Staffing for the Future!

At last! From July 19th 2021 we can begin looking ahead with fresh faith and a sense of emerging into a new era in the life of the church. These last 16 months have been extraordinary. I would like to take a moment to commend to you our outstanding staff and volunteer team and interns. Together they have helped us navigate our lifeboat through some choppy waters! They have been...

Building Update

We are (still) making progress on both the purchase of 11 Cranbury Terrace (11CT), and the sale of The Life Centre. You’ll have noticed the absence of any announcements – indicating that we aren’t quite there on the purchase of 11CT yet! On our side, we have everything in place and are ready to proceed as soon as a few remaining legal matters are concluded. Join us in praying that...

Solicitors. Surveyors. Banks. Agents. More solicitors… More surveyors….!

You may be thinking it’s been a little quiet on the Cranbury Terrace building front recently, and from an outward perspective you would be right. However, like a swan serenely gliding across a lake, the feet are pedaling hard out of sight.

I remember once hearing a Christian speaker sharing how he...

Prioritising Prayer

by Dave McNee Back in January this year, none of us would have come close to predicting the kind of shape that 2020 would take – and had anyone seen the little news there was of Covid-19 in China and other East-Asian nations at the time and made predictions of the country going into months of lockdown we would have dismissed them as ‘catastrophising’. It is worth remembering that there...

Life Church Moving Out of Lockdown

by Chris Kilby In the words of protest singer Bob Dylan, ‘The Times they are a' Changing.’ We have much adventure ahead, and are excited at the new things God is doing in us personally and as a church. God has been leading us since the end of last year into a renewed passion to pray, to love one another, and to serve our city. Life Church, we’re all on...
