About Life Church

In a nutshell

We are a Bible-believing Pentecostal church and part of the Elim Foursquare Gospel Alliance.

There is much more to Life Church than just meeting together on a Sunday! Throughout the week we have a programme of activities for young and old alike. Have a look at the Ministries page to discover more about our regular activities.

If you have been coming for a while, why not get involved with one of our Life Groups?
