Centenary of Assemblies of God

On 1 February 2024, Assemblies of God in Great Britain will mark its centenary, having been formed at a meeting in Whitehead Road, Aston, on Friday 1 February 1924. Assemblies of God is one of the three original indigenous British Pentecostal Churches, alongside the Apostolic Church and the Elim Foursquare Gospel Alliance.

Just 15 people from around the country attended the meeting which agreed to form the new fellowship of independent Pentecostal congregations, though the denomination grew rapidly in the years that followed. Today Assemblies of God consists of over 500 churches in almost 600 locations throughout Great Britain. It is a Pentecostal movement which believes that every individual can and should have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and have the opportunity to be part of a local, vibrant church. Assemblies of God seeks to empower and build local churches that are relevant to people of all ages. It is committed to transforming communities by reaching out to all, regardless of age, race or gender. Read more about Assemblies of God in Great Britain HERE.
