September Update: Rebrand

After 20 years of existence as New Life Christian Community, we are embracing the next 20 years with a new name and a new look! We have unveiled our new logo and are now operating under the name 'New Life Church'. Our website is in the process of getting a makeover to match these changes.

We are so grateful to God for the past 20 years and are now looking to the future with anticipation of the great things God will do - the best is yet to come!

Praying The Bible

kidbible2

We all have to learn to pray (Luke 11:1). One of the best ways to learn is to pray the Bible with others. Prayers recorded in the Bible are a valuable gift to us: they are prayers that have burned in God’s heart for His people. They give us the language of his heart, and because God never changes, we can be assured that they are still burning in His heart. It is wisdom to follow the Apostle Paul's instruction to speak and sing to one another using the Scriptures (Eph. 5:19)!

Some of the many passages that can be used for praying and singing the Bible:

  • Pray for revelation of Jesus’ beauty that we might walk in our calling and destiny by God’s power: Eph 1:17-19
  • Pray to receive the Spirit’s power so that Jesus’ presence would be revealed in us, so we experience God’s love: Eph 3:16-19
  • Pray for God’s love to abound in us by the knowledge of God, resulting in righteousness in our lives: Phil 1:9-11
  • Pray to know God’s will and to be fruitful in ministry and strengthened by intimacy with Him: Col 1:9-11
  • Pray that the Word will increase its influence in the city as God releases His power on it: 2 Thes 3:1
  • Pray that the light of God’s glory will shine upon unbelievers: 2 Cor 4:4,6
  • Pray for boldness and signs and wonders that testify of Jesus: Acts 4:29-30
  • Pray for overflowing hope: Rom 15:13
  • The Lord’s Prayer – each phrase is rich with meaning: Matt 6:9-13
  • The Psalms were designed to be sung and prayed. E.g. Psalms 27, 84, 86
People gather each week in our Prayer Room to pray the scriptures together. Ask us about coming along! This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

God On The Inside



It has been said, “If you want to walk in the Spirit, then talk to the Spirit”. The Holy Spirit takes up residence in all who receive Jesus as Lord (1 Cor. 6:17), yet many people are unaware of the experiential relationship that Holy Spirit longs to have with each of us. The Holy Spirit is not a mere power surge, a spiritual high-five, or some kind of wifi connection between heaven and earth. He is a person – he is God. So ‘walking in the Spirit’ is not pressing a button or flicking a switch, but cultivating a friendship.

Using “go-to prayers” in our daily life can help us to keep the conversation going with the Spirit. As we interact with him, he actually influences our thoughts and emotions – it’s incredible! A “go-to prayer” is my name for something memorable that you can easily use to kick-start your prayers. You can do it while driving, waiting in line, anywhere! Ask the Lord to help you grow in talking to the Spirit throughout the day.

For example, the TRUST prayer:
T – thank you for your presence in me Holy Spirit
R – reign in my thoughts and emotions right now
U – use me Holy Spirit
S – strengthen me on the inside Holy Spirit
T – teach me Holy Spirit. Let me see what You see and let me feel what You feel about that person or that situation

Cultivate a flourishing friendship with the Holy Spirit and get connected to the immeasurable treasure of God living on the inside of you!
