New Day Church (formerly Calvary Christian Fellowship) is based at the heart of South Ribble, a borough described in 2017 as the “best place in Britain to live” (based on ten metrics in a Channel 5 documentary). We are a family church with activities, ministries and services for people of all generations. In a significant period of growth for South Ribble, with many new homes and businesses being developed as part of “City Deal”, we are taking active steps to adapt to the changes and needs all around us whilst remaining true to our historic Christian faith and values.
We're ordinary people of all ages and from all walks of life living in Lostock Hall, Preston, Penwortham, Leyland, Clayton Brook, Chorley and various other districts in Central Lancashire who come together regularly to worship God. What we all have in common is that we want to discover more about just how Jesus Christ can change our lives and make them purposeful and fulfilling. Some of us have been on the road, following him for many years, and others of us are only just beginning to investigate authentic Christianity. Whoever you are and whatever your stage in life's journey, you're very welcome to join with us to find out more.
In April 2020 we welcomed Anthony & Angie Parkinson as Pastors. You can see them sharing their life stories during our services on 12th July 2020 (Anthony) and 19th July 2020 (Angie).
In March 2021 Graham Hooke retired as Senior Pastor but is still very active within the church and is one of our Trustees. Click here to find out more about him.
New Day Church is a member of the Evangelical Alliance.
