A new campus at Albany will be
launched by the LIFE church
early next year.
It officially opens on February
3 at 25 Arrenway Drive, Albany.
LIFE is a church passionate
about people living their lives
connected and on purpose,''
senior Pastor Paul de Jong says.
The much anticipated opening
of the North campus will bring
together existing congregations
who have been meeting on the
Hibiscus Coast, as well as in
West Auckland. We have over the
past year been planning to maxi-
mise our impact and reach by
running three large worship
services across the city. Addition-
ally a significant number of
North Shore residents have been
travelling across the bridge to
services at our central campus at
Mt Eden. Many of these people
will now be part of new LIFE
LIFE has four major focuses --
church, community, business and
kingdom. The church meets in
multiple locations on Sundays
and in 11 regions across Auck-
land throughout the week.
The church has been active in
Auckland for more than 20 years.
LIFE was formerly known as the
Christian Life Centre Auckland.
It has campuses at LIFE South
(Mangere) and LIFE Central (Mt
Eden). There are also campuses
at Warkworth and in Melbourne.
LIFE TV, with Paul de Jong,
has started on Prime at 6.30am
and 9.30am Sundays.
