The Church Leaders

Please find below a brief introduction to our church leaders and staff members.

D Dickson profile PhotoDavid Dickson - Church Leader

David joined New Life as its leader in April 2019.  Since he completed his Masters degree in the mid 1990’s, David has gained a wealth of experience in leadership, teaching, and church life in general.  He is passionate about effective church leadership and as well as mission work in all its forms, from practical work in the local community through to reaching out internationally.  Over the years he has travelled widely, to teach, preach and to coordinate leadership development and practical aid in the UK and overseas. He has been actively involved with Charis Ministries, and was one of the founders of this Charity.

For his leisure time he loves nothing better than reading a good book, watching movies or dining out with his wife Beverley.  As well, for physical activity he is enthusiastic about getting into the gym and (attempting) to play golf. David and Beverley have been married since 1990 and they have two adults sons: Nathan and Gareth.

Planning your Visit

A Warm Welcome 

 
Where and When

At the moment we are meeting online through Youtube and Facebook at 9.30am for an All Age Service and 11am for a Sunday Celebration whilst Covid restrictions remain in place. You can also join in our Zoom live chat at 12. Please contact us for login details. 

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.

We would 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. At the moment during Covid restrictions this will not be done.
 
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.

Our Service

Normally our service begins with a warm welcome from one of our team members and then lots of engaging activities during the next 45 minutes to 1 hour that the service lasts. 

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 a programme for the kids led by Children’s & Families Co-ordinator, Kerry Murray who can be contacted by mobile on 07810n 120896 or on the church office number 01293 512574 or by email kids@newlifecrawley.church

We cater for younger children with a creche we are currently developing as well as:

3 years old - 6 years old
7 years old - Year 7 (11yrs)

Normally children would stay with their parents at the start of the service as we worship (sing songs!) together for the first part of the morning. Someone will announce when the children need to go to their programme when that is relevant. You will need to register your children the first time they attend.

During the session, the children will get to do activities such as play games, do crafts, sing songs and learn about Jesus.

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. Please pick your children up as soon as the service finishes.

Getting Connected


Small Groups

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.

Serving and Volunteering

If you want to get involved in the life of the church and help us make Sundays run smoothly, you can sign up to serve on a team. We are also very supportive of our local community by working alongside other agencies and projects in order to express the love of God in a practical way across the area.

Other Ministries

We also run the following ministries:

  • Men's Ministries
  • Women's Ministries
  • Foodshare
  • Mental Wellbeing Group (starting soon)
