A brief history of Life Church Lincoln.
Life Church Lincoln was originally launched on 9th February 1997, as a church plant from New Life Christian Fellowship, Lincoln (now named Alive Church). Planted into the Birchwood estate area of Lincoln, the church has now grown to over 100 with a strong community focus. With the aim of transforming lives transforming communities. the church has over the years made a significant impact on the local area. Life Church is part of the Ground Level Network of Churches and has continued to have strong connections with its mother church, Alive Church Lincoln.
Right at the beginning of construction of the Birchwood estate, local Methodists had it in their hearts to build a Church at its centre. Finally, in 1964, building began. An opening ceremony marking the completion of the building took place in September 1966.
