NEW LIFE is a Bible teaching conference organised by the Anglican Diocese of Armidale for the women of the New England/Northwest.

NEW LIFE aims to provide quality Bible teaching to encourage women in their relationship with Jesus and equip them to serve Him in their local communities.

The theme for NEW LIFE 19 is Perseverance: Studies in the Book of Hebrews’


Lizzy Smallwood is married to Simon and have three children – Sam (20), Ailie (16) and Beatrice (8). They have been ministering at St. George’s – a small urban Anglican Church in Dagenham on the East London border for 21 years.

Lizzy loves music, film and wandering round the shops. Her favourite way to relax is with a cup of tea and a good book.

Lizzy is never happier than when she is teaching women the Bible and is excited by opportunities like NEW LIFE to preach and apply God’s word to Christian women seeking to follow Christ in the 21st Century.


This year our Friday night session will be a variety of speakers forming a panel to discuss various aspects of perseverance in the Christian life. We are excited about this
opportunity to present great teaching in an innovative format.
