Pastor Phil Thorne
said: “We have been on an exciting journey of discussion and prayer over the last two years with Pastor Stuart Bell
of New Life Lincoln
concerning merging our churches as a multi-site church of what will be seven locations across Lincolnshire
“We are excited about the launch, which will be a special day with Stuart Bell (Senior Pastor – Alive Church and Ground Level Network leader) speaking at our Sunday morning 10.30am service and Steve Campbell
(Senior Pastor – Cambridge Community Church and The Journey Network Leader) at our special Alive at 5:45pm service.”
Alive Church in Norwich joins with churches in with Wymondham, Lincoln, Hykeham, Scunthorpe, Grantham
to create a church of over 1500 people with a vision to establish many more.
Phil said: “We are excited with a fresh focus in impacting our city, region and nation. Alive Norwich is focused on being a dynamic, contemporary church full of people with a passion to see our city and beyond transformed by encountering our life-changing God. This is who we are: hope-carriers, generous givers, celebrators of people, passionate team players creating a culture of honour and devoted to the cause of Jesus. We are: all generations pulling together in the same direction to strongly influence the environment around us, impacting our doorstep world.”
