welcome to the richmond new life website


We are a friendly, family church and have a passion for loving God and loving people.

We endeavour to help people live life to the full, to realise their potential and to impact their world for Jesus Christ. Together we can make such a positive impact on and in the world we live in.

With great programmes, activities, and services for all ages, there is something for everyone.

Thanks for visiting and we really look forward to meeting you.

Life groups are an integral part of our church life. The purpose of a life group is to connect people who come together regularly for the common purpose of growing toward total devotion to Jesus Christ. Life groups offer an environment in which you find unique connection and community, where you can build relationships that are not always possible on a Sunday. Our goal is that everyone is connected and is part of a life group.  We have life groups with differing 'flavours' yet all moving toward the same purpose.

NOTE: If you are planning to attend a Life Group meeting for the first time, please call the church office first to confirm the day, time and venue.

For further information please contact the church office: 03 544 1094.

These Life Groups meet on Wednesday.

Real Men is about real blokes, doing real life, looking at real issues from a real perspective: God's perspective!

It is about equipping and supporting guys to live life to the full and be all they can be through Jesus Christ.

We love to see women connecting with each other, both here at Richmond New Life and in the community, and to see each women know her place as a daughter of the King.  We have amazing groups and events to help you realise these things.
