A Light on the High Street

The branch is simply our church on the high street!

We rented a shop in April 2019 with a vision of serving the needs of Fordingbridge town and surrounding villages through events and programmes that meet practical & emotional needs of the community.

About & Team

New Life Community Church (NLCC) meet at Burgate School every Sunday 10:15am.
After careful consideration and prayer we felt encouraged to rent a premises on the high street we opened the branch April 2019.

We love Fordingbridge town and the community and we want to be a beacon of light on the high street, a place where anyone can come and take shelter and chat and take part in any of our activities and programmes.

The branch is both a retail space where you will find Christian resources and gifts but also a Community Hub where we run everything from youth work & parent/carer support groups to Coffee mornings.

Our pastoral team Paul Williams and Dale Kratzke are based in the offices at the branch and the Retail side of the shop is run by a group of brilliant volunteers.

What’s on

Little Buds is currently running Friday mornings & we are excited to kick off our new Support group Grow this September.

CAP Money will also be back in September and February

NLCC and The Branch are here to serve our community- whether it’s someone to talk to, one of our courses or events or access to foodbank vouchers please feel free to pop in.

We also work alongside some brilliant people who make a huge difference to The community of Fordingbridge.

Fordingbridge Foodbank is part of the Trussell Trust and is open 3 days a week and led by David and a group of volunteers. We can issue Foodbank vouchers from the branch after a few questions regarding your personal circumstances.
