About us

This assembly began on a farm just outside of Thorsby, Alberta in 1922, as a Sunday School and Bible Study outreach.  In the beginning we were a German speaking group with secondary English studies and services.  Over the years we have seen many changes.  The first church building on that farm was sadly lost to fire. 

 

A new building was erected not too far from that location, on a donated piece of land.   In the mid sixties, the English speaking members chose to build a church within the town site of Thorsby, AB.  In the early to mid seventies the churches were re-united as one in the new building in Thorsby.   That building is where we worship to this day.

In March of 2020, due to Covid 19, we had to begin holding "online" services.  When we were allowed to get back to offer live church services, once again, in June, there was a lot of excitement.  That first service back was a great blessing here at New Life Christian Fellowship in Thorsby, Alberta.  Although not everyone has returned to live services, we are enjoying them anyway.  We continue to offer online options.
