Fleckney New Life Church

Life groups are an integral part of the NLCF church structure. We meet in small groups of 5-10 people in each other's houses during the week. During these times together we seek to be in genuine, committed, loving and accountable relationships with each other and with God.

Part of the purpose of a life group is to serve the local community and to share God's love. At present our life groups are involved in organising, among other things:

Longgrey Lunch

Flicks in the sticks Showing films in the local village hall

Visiting Saddington Grange Nursing Home On the first Wednesday of every month, a small group of retired NLCF members (lovingly know as the “Golden Oldies”) visit Saddington nursing home to lead a short half-hour service of praise and worship, and to offer fellowship with the residents.

The usual format on arrival is to mingle with residents (most of them are elderly and infirm), to offer a smile and a friendly word. We then open the service with a welcome and a prayer, before singing around 4 hymns, carefully chosen for the age group and to accommodate old favourites. In between the hymns we have Bible readings and a message, often given by Mrs Flo Bull; a member of the local church in Saddington.

After the service (which is fairly informal) we again mingle with the residents and staff to chat, and offer prayer if requested. We all enjoy our short time together, and the “Golden Oldies” feel blessed and called by our Lord to do this work in this way, and use it as our Life Group's “outreach”.
