News from the networkNHA card

Here you will find items of news. This is not comprehensive as we do not have the capacity to record all aspects of news relating to 'church in new housing areas'. We will post news items that we think are most helpful to local church leaders, and particular items suggested by members of our network.


If you have news items to suggest, contact Jim Currin from the 'Contact' window on the main page for new housing or email jim.currin(AT)


Items will chiefly be headlines and web links for brevity and immediate follow up.
