Our Story

New Life Church in Verbania is a community that loves God and loves people. Our goal is to authentically share the message and hope given by Jesus. Our commitment is to bring new life through the power of the gospel.

The church started in 1999 and has been present in the city for over twenty years growing and organizing numerous activities and services in order to give life to the church body and bring light to the city! Around 90 people gather every week to hear about the Bible, love Jesus, and serve each other faithfully.

From the beginning the church of Verbania dreamed of having its own place to gather but the right conditions never arose. With the arrival of the pandemic we found ourselves, like all churches, taken aback, but above all without a place to meet. As a result of these difficulties we discovered a new way of being church. During the lockdown periods the church met online and recorded the meetings in order to reach all members of the community. We did not know it at the moment, but this was the means God used to allow us to reach many more people than we could have imagined! Despite the benefits of online meetings, the time apart has created an even greater awareness of the importance of spending time together as a church family and having a place to do that.

A new beginning

God has answered our need. After years of searching we have found a building suitable for us. This is our new beginning! A location for gathering, sharing, growing, a place that has the potential to become a Christian school for Italian children and teenagers, a home for refugees, a safe place for homeless people, and a welcoming facility for the youth around the city.

The Building

At the moment this building can fit 150 people on its main room for Sunday services but has the potential of holding over 500. It is composed of two floors, a yard, a main room, four apartments, a parking lot, and an underground ample room. These are the mesurements:

- 21500 ft² Yard
- 2600 ft² First floor
- 6100 ft² Basement
- 7000 ft² Terrace
- 3280 ft² Appartments
