What kind of church are you?

We're a warm and caring church where people are helped and encouraged. We believe the Bible is relevant for today, and seek to put its teachings into practice as a community.

Who's there?

People of all ages and backgrounds. You'll find a warm welcome here!

What shall I wear?

There is no dress code, so we encourage you to come as you are! If it helps, most of us are usually pretty casual.

What is your style?

Our services are informal, with a mix of traditional and modern music.

Can I bring the children?

Children are welcome and there is a children’s ministry that takes place during the worship service. All childrens' workers are DBS checked.

New Life Christian Fellowship is a warm, friendly and welcoming church in Harrogate.


We are a Bible-based church teaching the unadulterated word of God. Our approach is based on simplicity and understanding; helping individuals to understand the love and grace of God and to grow in their relationship with Jesus.


Join us in a supportive environment where you can experience the love of God, increase in the knowledge of Jesus and experience the Presence of the Holy Spirit. All are welcome!

Matt 11:28 Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest!
