Assemblies of God (GB)
E.P.C. is part of a fellowship of churches in Great Britain called the Assemblies of God (AoG). This was founded in Birmingham in 1924 with about 70 churches and now includes almost 600 churches and nearly 1000 ministers. The Fellowship has its own Christian College near Doncaster, called Mattersey Hall, where the Ministry Centre is also based.
The purpose of Assemblies of God is to give every man, woman and child the opportunity of understanding the gospel and to provide a church where they can grow in ministry for the glory of God.
Being part of a network or fellowship of churches provides wider support, accountability, encouragement and training.
