Big Weekend2018-02-13T12:52:59+00:00

This year’s Big Weekend is bigger than ever. There is something for everyone.

The theme of the Big Weekend is “Perfectly”. If God is always up to something and what He is up to is always done perfectly – then why is life often so messy & painful? When the biggest challenges come can we really put complete trust in God – even when the circumstances don’t seem to be improving? Is this what living a life of faith is about?

Helping us through the weekend with inspirational teaching, song and humour are David Shearman, Philippa Hanna,  Ellie Button and Russ Westfield. Read more about each below and do remember to book your place at the Philippa Hanna concert (Sat 23rd June) at the early bird price right now.




Some say he is a true Apostle, some a Prophet – perhaps he is both. For certain he is a one of a kind. After pastoring one of the U.K’s largest churches and authoring many books he now has more time than ever to speak powerfully into the lives of congregations and leaders helping them reflect the grace & mercy of God. Strong in spirit yet soft in heart David will transmit a word from God to us during his visit.


Ellie along with her husband Tim are no strangers to newLife. She led us in worship at last year’s Big Weekend, performed in concert and ministered beautifully. This year Ellie & Tim will take a few newLifers on a mission trip to their new venture in Moldova but before that she has found time to lead us in worship once again. Be prepared for some real encounters with the Holy Spirit as she ministers.


Without doubt one of the U.K’s best Christian singer-songwriters Philippa has agreed to bring her touring band to newLife for one evening only. Having toured with some of the biggest names in show-business (Lionel Ritchie, Little Mix) she has recently spent time in Nashville completing her latest album. Two years ago Philippa joined us for our Big Weekend and wowed us all. This year she brings her full band and will perform her album live. Book your ticket here.
