Community Impact

Evergreen Sleaford

This is a Befriending Scheme responding to the high demand for community-based opportunities for social contact amongst older people. It is a free and confidential service to support senior citizens in making the most of their life experience into old age. The aim of Evergreen Befrienders is to step in and become a support person. It is hoped that as a relationship develops this will prove mutually enriching and worthwhile. For information visit

Second Chance

This registered charity provides a second hand clothes shop and dress agency and also a cosy, friendly coffee shop where tea and coffee, homemade cakes, soups, jackets, paninis and much more are provided at very reasonable prices. They are located at 30 Boston Road, Sleaford.

Homelessness Support

New Life Church currently sits on the ‘NKDC Homelessness Forum’ which brings together local representatives from different agencies to consider the issues affecting people who are homeless or threatened with homelessness with an aim to improve the services they receive and options available to them.

Street Source

From 10:30pm on Saturday night to 2am in the early hours of Sunday morning, providing care for those who have been in the pubs and clubs and want a safe place to wait for a taxi or a lift home, for those who want a cup of coffee before they leave the town centre, for those who might have had a row with a friend or partner and need someone to talk to.

Primary Schools


As part of children's work in the community we visit three local primary schools to take school assemblies and run an occasional RE lesson. The team will use different media to present collective worship in a way that engages children to know and learn more about God, the bible and the world around them. In June every year we also are involved in the schools festival in St Denys church Sleaford




Summer Holiday Club


When schools out for summer we open our doors for an annual Holiday Bible Club for all primary aged children. The week is fast paced with tons of action and fun through different activities, songs, games, quizzes and puppets to bring faith alive to a younger generation.


Throughout the year we have a group of people who seek to reach out to people who currently reside within Morton Hall Immigration Removal Centre offering encouragement & hope during an uncertain time.

‘Just 4 Men’ builds friendship for men both young and old. Social events like a walk around Rutland Water, fishing, an Italian Gourmet Meal, Men's Breakfasts with short talk, discussion & prayer are just a sample of events for men to take part in.

‘Women 2 Women’ is an opportunity for ladies to come together to connect & encourage one another through events like Cheese & Wine Evenings, Chocolate Extravaganza, Food tasting evenings as well as Christmas events.

Senior meals 2In 2007, we launched our first Senior Citizen Christmas Meal with 55 guests. Since this time we have increased both in terms of numbers attending and the amount of meals that we run. We currently run a meal at Easter, Summer, Harvest and Christmas – and see anywhere between 85-105 attendees. Transport is provided for those unable to make it in any other way and a fun time is had by all. Many state that our meals provide them with the time and opportunity to talk with friends they would not be able to see without our events – and we love to see the smiles on their faces!

‘By the community… For the community.’

may-2010-002The Community Larder is a provision of a 3 day supply of food items for genuine emergencies for those who find themselves in temporary hardship, with no other source of money or support. Situations such as homelessness, debt, unemployment, benefit review or family breakdown can all lead to difficulties for individuals or families. Launched in October 2008, the larder has now received over been able to support well over 6,500 people. The current economic climate has meant that the larder has become increasingly busy, often supporting around 70 people each month.

This has only been made possible through the incredible support and generosity of local churches, schools and other local organisations. The larder has been able to create a stock of items that have enabled the church to provide this valuable community resource.

IMG_4478During a visit by our local MP Stephen Phillips, who was very supportive he commented, "Many people do not understand what the Big Society is all about. But its projects exactly like this one which embody the community spirit which the Prime Minister and I wish to promote. I commend everyone at the New Life Community Larder for their hard work and dedication, supporting some of the most vulnerable people in our community."

The New Life Community Larder is happy to receive referrals from any local agency or organization that may come into contact with people who may benefit from the larder. They are able to receive referrals from agencies Monday - Friday between the hours of 10am - 4pm, when the church office is usually staffed. All referrals will need to be supported by a completed referral form, with the referring agency details in full.
