It’s awesome that you are thinking of visiting us here at New Life Church Rugby. We know it can feel a little daunting visiting a new church, but please know that you are very welcome here! We’ll try and answer some common questions, but if you need to contact us about anything else, please drop an email to our office – firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you soon!
Our Sunday services start at 10:30am. We have a relaxed, family style to our meeting, allowing space for everyone to be themselves. There’s no dress code or expectations for anyone – just come as you are.
There is space at the back of the hall where families tend to sit and allow their children to play or engage with the meeting as they want, before they leave to go to their individual groups at about 11am after our sung worship time. There is provision made for children from creche age up to the age of 14 during our meetings, and you’ll be asked to sign your children into these groups for safeguarding reasons.
Our sung worship is lively and God focused, usually led by a band. We sing a mixture of contemporary worship songs, home-written songs and traditional older songs. Our preach is between 30-45 mins long and sometimes leads to a prayer or response time as we feel the Holy Spirit leads. We close the meeting at approximately 12.15pm and refreshments are made available as everyone stays for a while for a chat.
We highly value our children and give priority to making them feeling safe, accepted and loved. We want to train them well in the Word, and disciple them well as they grow older to be passionate men and women of God. Our provision for children on Sunday mornings is split into the following groups that start at around 11am, after the sung worship time in the main meeting.
- Creche – Preschool
- EPIC – Reception to Year 2 (more info here)
- EDGE – Year 3 to Year 6 (more info here)
- Youth – Year 7 to Year 9 (more info here)
