Please can you endeavour to bring your collection box back into church for Dorothy, before the end of July.

New Life Church Event

New Life Church in New Milton are thrilled to be having Barry Woodward with them on Friday the 30th of July at 7pm. A great opportunity to bring those who do not yet know Jesus to hear an amazing testimony from a brilliant communicator and evangelist.

Barry Woodward grew up in Salford, Greater Manchester. At 16, he left school with no qualifications and became drawn into the Manchester music and drugs scene. This led to a life of heroin addiction and drug dealing. After being dependent on heroin for 15 years and spending a number of terms in prison, Barry had what he described as a “religious experience”, which resulted in his life being totally transformed.
