Where & when does the church meet?

Our Church meets every Sunday at 10:30am for our Sunday Service. Aim to arrive 15 minutes early to ensure you get a parking spot and seat in time for the service to start.

We meet at:
The Glade
Furnace Drive
Crawley RH10 6JL 

   

What happens with the children at church?

We regularly have a programme for the kids led by Children’s & Families Co-ordinator, Kerry Murray who can be contacted 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)

Children 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. You will need to go with your children and register them, 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. 

What should I expect when I visit the church?

You will receive a very warm welcome particularly from our Welcome Team who will be able to answer your questions and direct you to where you need to go. There will be a time of praise and worship (songs) for adults and children together. Afterwards, there will be a life related message from one of the leaders of the Church. 

Children will often go to their groups for Sunday school whilst the adults listen to the message. We sometimes have a special Family Service led by various team members. These are always fun, engaging times where everyone can take part and enjoy the activities, music and hear a message to help us better understand what it means to be a follower of Jesus. Watch out for details or check out the Facebook page for updates.

Once the service is over there will be plenty of time for tea/coffee and a chance to meet people and have a chat. We are also happy to pray with you after the service if that is helpful to you. When you visit, please do introduce yourselves to one of the leadership team so we can provide you with any information you need about the life of the church.

Is there a dress code?

No! Please just be yourself and come dressed in your 'normal' clothes.

Will I have to join in?

Not at all! You are free to simply observe or participate as much as feels comfortable for you.   

I have more questions, how can I get in touch and ask them.

Please feel free to contact usYou can explore more about the Christian faith through our Christianity Explored Course.

Planning your Visit

A Warm Welcome 

 
Where and When

At the moment we are meeting ONLINE ONLY, through Youtube, Facebook and Zoom. This will be actively reviewed during the current pandemic and we will return to meeting at the Church Building (details below) for our Sunday Service starting at 10.30am as soon as we are able to. For your first visit, we recommend 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 serve tea, coffee and biscuits from at the end of the service. It is a great way to meet people, or simply take time to find your bearings. All refreshments are free.

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

The main service begins at 10.30am with a warm welcome from one of our team members. Then follows a time of sung worship, led by our band. We typically have 2 or 3 songs lasting approximately 20 minutes. Sometimes a person might pray out loud or read a small passage from the bible. Sometimes people share things that they believe God is saying to the whole church family. This might seem strange the first time you hear it but it’s all part of our connecting with God. 
One of our leaders will then give a message that is relevant to life, based on the bible and one that we can apply to our everyday life. There are regular opportunities to receive prayer at the end of the service.

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 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)

At the moment we have a special stream for children on our Youtube Channel at 12 on a Sunday followed by a Zoom chat with Kerry. Please contact Kerry for login details.

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. You will need to go with your children and register them, 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
