Welcome to NLCC

Whether you are visiting for the first time, or regularly coming to New Life Christian Church, we consider it an honour to have you with us. May your experience at New Life inspire you to pursue Christ passionately, and discover your part in our story as well.

WORSHIP TIME & NEW LIFE CONNECT
We’d love to have you worship with us this Sunday; and it is our prayer that from the moment you walk through the doors of our church, you will feel an overwhelming sense of…home.

Our worship service starts on Sundays at 10:30 am. You’ll hear new songs and favourite hymns, and biblical and relevant messages.  Come dressed in “work casual”.  Nursery (0 to 2 yrs) is available during worship service. If you have Sunday School aged children (3 to 11 yrs), please register your child at the beginning of the service, then have your children sit with you during the first part of the service to enjoy family worship together.  Your children will then be invited to go to Sunday School for Bible teaching relevant to your child’s age before the message starts. 

Upon your visit, we’d love the opportunity to meet you. We invite you to attend New Life Connect, a brief reception held immediately after our services. This is a chance for us to meet you and learn more about your next steps in becoming a part of the New Life family.

EXPLORING CHRISTIANITY?
We welcome everyone who is exploring Christianity, asking questions, seeking answers, wondering about the purpose of life and what the Bible says about humanity, society, and God.  We invite you to come to New Life to discover what being a believer in Jesus is all about.  If you’re visiting with us online, please write to us under the contacts page and ask the questions you’d like answered.  If you choose to meet us face-to-face, we’d welcome the opportunity to share with you personally.

YOUTH
Our Youth comprises teens from Grades 7 to 12, and are a vibrant part of our community.  Do visit our Youth Ministry as we live out together the exciting life of knowing Jesus.

YOUNG ADULTS
Our College/University, career aged young adults find meaningful connections at New Life through our Youth Adults ministry.  Come join us as we build community together.

NEW LIFE GROUPS
Here at New Life, we organize ourselves into Life Groups to study the Bible, connect with each other, care for each other and grow spiritually and socially as we “do life together”.  We encourage you to join one of our New Life Groups that disperse geographically from Ajax/Pickering to Etobicoke, meeting in homes and at the church.  Come grow with us!

ARE YOU A SENIOR?
We have amazing seniors at our church, complementing the intergenerational nature of our congregation with younger and older hanging out together in this community called New Life.  Our Seniors Ministry cares, nurtures, and mobilizes our seniors as they meaningfully invest their time in the adventure of the deeper life in Jesus.

JAPANESE FELLOWSHIP
Every Sunday, our Japanese Fellowship called Gideon Fellowship meets with the rest of our New Life community for worship in song, then adjourn for the study of God’s Word in Japanese during the latter part of our worship service. During the week, we have Bible Study as well off site.  Japanese-speaking friends are invited! 

INVITATION TO PRAYER AND BIBLE STUDY
Every Tuesday at 7 pm, we meet as a church to study God’s Word and to pray, spending about an hour in each.  Come join us for a relaxed and informal meeting, but an in-depth look at what God says in the Bible.  Followed by that, join us for an “hour of power” as we come at the invitation of God, our Heavenly Father, in a sweet time of prayer.

WOMEN’S AND MEN’S FELLOWSHIPS
Our Women and Men meet separately or together for breakfast once a month at 9:00 am, then break for fellowship and learning in our respective contexts.  Here, discipleship occurs – men with our men, and women with our women – developing lasting bonds and growth through the month as we meet beyond the fellowship context as disciples seeking the Great Disciple Maker, Jesus Christ.

KINGDOM PARTNERSHIPS
Beyond our own church, two other churches use our facilities – Tamil Church of the Living Saviour (3:00 pm), and the Armenian Evangelical Brotherhood Church of Toronto (6:00  pm) – ministering the Word of God and the power of Jesus to save in their respective language communities.

MISSIONS
We are also integrally involved in various missions organizations that minister the gospel across the globe – in sub-continental India, South Asia, and Thailand.  Join us in these gospel partnerships as we seek to bring the Good News of Jesus to the world.

New Life Christian Church is part of a greater whole of two denominations that birth our historyBe In Christ Canada (BIC), and the Ontario Conference of Mennonite Brethren (ONMB).  We are humbled to be part of these movements of God that have rich historical testimonies, and an exciting world-wide reach.
