Kids Ministry Launched

Newlife church has launched a kids ministry on Sundays. We are using the Mayflower Bible Lessons curriculum that has activities for children of all ages. As our numbers increase we plan to split the kids into age levels and start a youth ministry.

 

Seminar on the Prophetic Gift with Phil Wilthew

Saturday’s seminar was a huge success. We began with worship, and then a teaching session from Phil that explained the biblical basis for prophecy. Practical exercises started with encouraging one another.

As we moved into the afternoon, Phil and the team talked about obstacles such as fear and a spirit of proud self-sufficiency and there were lots more opportunities to put what we were learning into practice as we prayed for one another.

Newlife Church at Cabbagetown Festival 2009

Our Cabbagetown Festival event was a great success and everything we planned worked well—

  • 240 water bottles with Newlife labels were given away in less than an hour
  • over 200 cookie packs went in the same time
  • The live worship music was excellent
  • The buttons were a great hit
  • Dozens of people participated in the “Toronto Needs Hope” chart
  • We were able to strike up some good conversations
  • And what is really important—most of the church participated in some way

Official Newlife Church Launch

I am excited to announce the official launch of Newlife Church, Toronto, this coming Sunday (April 26th) at 3:00pm.

Many people have been working hard for the last few weeks, preparing for our new “look” and distributing invitations around the neighbourhood, as well as working behind the scenes on administration and planning.

We will have a larger team than usual leading the worship, with Luke and Dan joined by others. Andrew will be preaching a gospel message, so this would be a good time to invite your friends.

Josh has designed us a wonderful new logo:

Newlife Church, Toronto.

We have a new website which is about to go live on nlife.ca any moment, but if you want to have a sneak preview, take a look at this link: temporary link to new website.

During this week we have been handing out fliers. This is what the front looks like. (On the back is more about the church and a map.)

Newlife Church Toronto: Leaf flyer.

Heather took the leaf photo as well as an amazing shot of grass growing up through concrete which we used as a basis for the poster below. We distributed a letter to people living around the school where we meet containing an invitation and a smaller version of grass photo. We do hope you can make it on Sunday and bring as many friends as you are able! (Beware that the DVP is closed all day.)

Here is the poster:

Second Sunday Afternoon Meeting at St. Martins

The new meeting time—Sunday afternoons—seemed to work out very well last week. We’ll be meeting again this Sunday at the same time (3:00pm). Luke and Dan will be leading the worship and Andrew will be preaching the third and final message on the “Kingdom of God”, (as part of our series on Christian foundations).

Bill took some great pictures. Here are a couple of us worshiping:

Our very first Sunday afternoon meeting! This Sunday we’ll be meeting at 3:00pm instead of 6:00pm. One advantage of meeting earlier is that there is more time for fellowship and food afterwards :)

Here are a couple of pictures from when we met two weeks ago.

We had a great time eating pancakes last Sunday. Over 30 people showed up with huge appetites and nine batches of pancakes were made by Anne and Susanna! Here are “before” and “after” pics:

And an “after” picture where everyone has sugar overload!
