Sunday Afternoon Church

Date: 
Sun, 2009-12-27 - 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Last Sunday’s Christmas meal was an amazing time of everyone doing their part and sharing love. As we celebrated communion together I felt that we have something very precious in the community that God has given us. Here are some pictures:

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

The picnic last week was a great success, and Ryan was able to get an awesome and amazingly clear group photo. This is the first time we have had a group shot and apart from a few people who were not able to make it, everyone from Newlife is in the picture! (including a few welcome visitors)

Those who were able to go on the zoo trip on Monday had a great time (even though the weather was not so great). Above is a wonderful sign we spotted there :) On the right are a couple more pictures:

Everyone I have spoken to has said how well they thought our launch meeting went last Sunday. Here are some pictures:

Dustin is manning the welcome table, which is displaying Deb’s painting of our growth motif, a sequence of images on the laptop, our new welcome packs and invitation cards, and a glass bowl of white glass marbles, with one green one. (I hope nobody thought they were candies and tried to eat one!)

There was a larger worship team than usual, (Grace, Martin and Adam joined Luke and Dan). We had a wonderful time in God’s presence and then a gospel message brought by Andrew.

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:
