Britain’s black Pentecostal churches are among the largest in the country with several having a regular attendance of 1,000+. Increasingly, black churches also run a wide range of community projects which are designed to help the vulnerable and disadvantaged members of the black community.
For over 50 years Britain’s black churches have provided hope, support, direction, community services, inspirational gospel music and moral guidance to the black community and beyond.
Due to their longevity and the social and spiritual impact they have on their members, black churches are viewed as the most stable, prosperous and influential institution within Britain’s African and Caribbean communities.
Such is the high regard in which black churches have been held of recent years, some of the most powerful and influential members of society have visited them personally, including former Prime Minister Tony Blair and HRH The Prince of Wales. Other prominent visitors include civic leaders, MPs, local councillors, heads of charities, community service providers, business leaders and educationalists.
