Discovery 947 Cycle Challenge Sun 17 Nov
The 947 Cycle Race goes past New Life Church on the morning of Sun 17 Nov. Therefore, there will be no services on Sun 17 Nov as the race will be going straight past New Life Church main entrance and the feeder roads will be closed. We pray that those of our congregation who are riding in the 947 Cycle Challenge will have a safe and successful race.
 
Community Centre Christmas Gift Donations
Every year at Christmas we like to bless our New Life Community Centre children with a special gift pack. For many of these children, this will be the only gift they receive at Christmas. Christmas is a time for children to experience God’s generosity, as we celebrate the greatest gift of all, our Saviour Jesus. We’d love for you to join us in showing God’s kindness by donating a gift this year. Gift packs are R100 each. You can give here, or make use of the envelopes provided at the Welcome Centre on Sundays. Thank you in advance for the way that you so generously give. All donations welcome.
