FAMILY IS AT THE HEART OF WHAT WE DO!
Family Central is a community outreach endeavour of New Life Community Church. Our aim is to provide free in-depth care to local families who are most in need.
We provide practical, emotional and spiritual support to individuals and families in a warm, caring and non-judgemental way. This includes:
Family support: we aim to improve the health and well being of children and young people, improve parenting skills and provide better support networks for lone parents
Befriending: we aim to improve the quality of life for older people through practical support and social inclusion.
Debt Support: we provide in depth debt support, including dealing with creditors, setting up a debt management plans, dealing with bailiffs, bankruptcy, county court judgements, money management and budgeting etc.
A referral network that includes doctors’ surgeries, NHS nurses, food banks and schools
“In September 2011, we became aware that the Conservative Club in Milnrow had suddenly become available with immediate vacant possession. … The members of New Life, together with Christians from other churches stood with us, offering astounding financial pledges of support which enabled us to acquire the building.
This was ‘just the beginning’ and sacrificial hard work was required as the building was in a much-needed state of internal and external repair. Concentrating mainly on the upstairs main hall we eventually held our first Sunday Service at the end of January 2013.
Our very own building immediately opened up a whole host of possibilities including Alpha courses, men’s and lady’s events, various evening services, comedy events etc., to name but a few. Most notably, being able to run the weekly Kidz Klub event in house was a great bonus.
After a time of rest from the building work, another generous offering from New Life members enabled us to complete another phase of the building work in 2015. The rooms making up two levels in the stone building attached to the back elevation were completely renovated and now comprises an upstairs admin office, a lower ground room prayer/counselling/meeting room, a kitchenette and a WC.”
