New Life Church Västerås, multicultural and international

New Life Church Västerås started in 2011 with a small group of people. They had a great vision and a heart for the people of Västerås. What began as a humble dream and prayer of our pastors Josef and Isabelle Arnfjell has now grown into a community. During the weeks we share life together in the form of Homechurch, and every other Sunday we meet for Sunday Service.

New Life Church is a multicultural international Church for the whole family.Our ambition is to be a relevant and trustworthy Church where everyone is welcome.

We are part of a bigger movement sweeping over the world with a simple truth: God is good! Our ambition is to function as a family and we have a dream of growing a true christian community.We want to impact our world with hope, show that every person is unique and that we all are part of something bigger. Our lives makes a difference.

Every week we have Homechurch. We meet in our homes and share our life together – in life´s ups and downs, with prayer and the Bible to show us the way. Love God, love people and love life!

We look forward meeting you, welcome!
