Over 40 years ago the story of New Community began in the front room of a house with a small handful of us. A lot has happened since then! We’ve seen Jesus do amazing things in many lives and now, hundreds of us meet each week across multiple venues because we can't all fit in the same room anymore! Whatever your story, whatever your background or lifestyle, you are welcome with us.
Step into the Story
Since the start of New Community Church we have been on a mission to make Jesus known to our local communities and to the nations of the world. It has been a story of pioneering adventure, courageous risk taking and God’s unfailing faithfulness.
We believe that God is calling us to live out our story in His much bigger story, extending the kingdom by building a church with lots of people from lots of different backgrounds, made up of lots of smaller communities, in lots of different locations, reaching lots of different people and nations!
When we dream about the future, what we are most concerned about is introducing people to Jesus and helping them see their place in His story.
Join the Story?
We would love for you to find your place at New Community. The best way to explore and find out more about us is to join us on a Sunday and sign up to our termly DNA course. This is a no-commitment opportunity for you to find out more about us as a church and whether this is the kind of place you feel you could make your spiritual home.
If you have a question or would like someone to connect with you, you can get in touch here.
Who We Are
Every week hundreds of people volunteer hundreds of hours to make New Community Church happen. People from every walk of life working together as part of one big team. Here are a few of our leaders and staff team you might see on a Sunday.

When we open our eyes and look around us, it doesn't take long to realise that there are many things wrong in the world.
We don't just want to observe the problems, we want to play our part in doing something about it and so we are delighted to partner with Compassion, International Justice Mission and Home for Good. These are brilliant organisations doing amazing work across the globe.
