Who we are

New Life Church Okehampton was planted in 1982 and is part of Assemblies of God UK

The Assemblies of God is made up of over 550 churches of various sizes located throughout Great Britain. We are a Pentecostal movement who believes that every individual can and should have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and have the opportunity to be part of a local, vibrant church. We seek to build churches that are relevant to people of all ages - many of our churches attract a large number of young people. In our local expression of church and our corporate identity as a whole, we are committed to transforming communities by reaching out to all individuals regardless of age, race or gender.
