Christ Centered and Gospel-Shaped

New Life Downtown is a congregation of New Life Church. We make sense of our identity as the people of God by how we formed around the Table. We worship at the Lord's Table on Sundays, where we rehearse the Gospel and see how blessed we are in Christ. We connect with one another around our tables during the week, where we allow ourselves to be broken- humble and vulnerable- with one another. We serve- the church, city, and world- by preparing a table for others to meet with Jesus as we become given for the sake of others.

Blessed; broken; given- this is who we are in the hands of God. Worship; connect; serve- this is what we do as the people of God.

As you explore this site, our hope is that you will not only join us in worship, but that you would become part of this community, and serve alongside us as we allow the Lord to take us, bless us, break us, and give us for the sake of the world, to the glory of God.

Our Teaching Team

New Life Downtown's teaching team is comprised of Lead Pastor Glenn Packiam, and Associate Pastors Jason Jackson and Evan Reedal. Together, they share the responsibility of preaching and teaching in our weekly services. This team approach allows New Life to hear from multiple voices, and allows sustainable rhythms for our Downtown Teaching Team.

We don't always need to know how God is present in order to experience His presence.

Our Story


APRIL 11, 2014

A New Congregation Begins

On Easter Sunday of 2012, New Life Downtown had its first public worship service. But the story begins a bit before that day.

Our Liturgy

Liturgy simply means “the work of the people”, so in one sense ‘liturgy' it is what we do together as we gather to worship God. But in a much deeper sense, liturgy isn’t at all about what we do; its about what God does. Each Sunday, we believe that we encounter God through song, Scripture and sacrament. In other words, we gather around the Word and the Table, singing and praying as the Spirit of God meets us along the way. That’s why we draw from the rich treasury of the Church's historic worship practices while being attentive to the fresh work of the Spirit in our day.  Our worship, then, at New Life Downtown is rooted in history with room for mystery. 

Here’s a little bit more about each element of our services:
