Here at New Life we try to have a large world view, keeping a focus on what God is doing all over the world as well as here in Worthing. One of the ways we do this is by supporting those who are taking Jesus to the ends of the earth. Here are some of the people and organisations we support through prayer and resources. If you would like to know more about missions or the possibility of going on a short term mission trip, please contact us and one of the mission team will get back to you.
New Life is excited to support Arab World Media (AWM).
AWM is an organisation that uses strategic digital media to present the truth of the gospel and engage Muslims who are seeking, open and ready. AWM was established in 1959 under the leadership of North Africa Mission. It began in North Africa with broadcasting radios, but has continued to grow and develop. In 2010 AWM joined the Pioneers family and became an independent charity under Pioneers leadership.
AWM ministry is now completely digital. The media strategies help to identify those who are ready to embrace the truth of the gospel. There is a team of Arab national responders who answer questions and listen to people’s stories. The purpose is to build disciples and connect believers in hostile environments.

EGLISE EVANGELIQUE DU QUEREUX DE LA LAITERIE (The lighthouse into the darkness)
The project to support the church (Rochefort-Western France) started in January 2005, via Catherine Hunt. South African born Tim Williams has been the Pastor of the Church since May 2008. He is married to Nadine and they have 3 children : Clara, Peter and Melina.
The Church has grown in the past three years and has been involved in several local outreaches; music festivals, youth works and “Agape” meals. Its aim is to bring the Gospel to the town and the region as it has a sister church in Ile d’Oleron.
Helder and Ana-Paula were Youth Leaders at New Life Church for 4 years before joining the mission organisation One Challenge (OC). They now live in Granada, Spain with their four children ( Matteo, Raffaello, Pietro and Valentina). They have founded ‘180 Global‘ as a ministry for youth and young adults, the ‘RedTimoteo‘ to serve emerging Spanish Evangelists, and planted a church in Granada called ‘C29‘.

Hope In Africa
Hope in Africa is a UK registered charity that has brought together several works from around East and Central Africa. It is the combination of Child2Child, Hope for Lugazi and Bible Fellowship of Malalwi with one UK office, one board, one vision to serve and is the support of 5 African visionaries. The five visionaries are Mr Edward Nsimbi, Bishop Damson Twabali, Pastor Sebastian Juma, Mr Hosea Kili and Bishop Patrick Munyua
Alongside the 5 visionaries there is the Child2Child Kenyan family. A group of nine young men that Matthew and Michelle Barrow have been nurturing and caring for, with the help of UK sponsors, since 2003 up to now. Only one young man is currently being supported as the rest are now independent men in Kenyan society.
New Life Church has a heart for this organisation and continue to support the vision.
