Christians throughout the country are praying for Bishop Wilton Powell, one of the most loved church leaders within the UK Black church community, who is in hospital after suffering a heart attack on Easter Sunday.

Bishop Powell serves as National Overseer of the Church of God of Prophecy UK & France (COGOP) and as Vice Chairman of West Midlands housing association, Nehemiah UCHA.

At the time of writing, Bishop Powell is in hospital and, according to a statement issued by the church, is ‘in a critical condition’. The statement goes on to say “There are encouraging signs that he is making steady progress towards recovery, and we pray he continues to improve.”

Since Bishop Powell’s heart attack, the Executive Board of the COGOP has met to make arrangements to support Bishop Powell and his family, as well as to assist with the national leadership of COGOP whilst Bishop Powell is recovering.

Bishop Powell’s family have expressed their thanks for the many, many kind messages of support they have received during this difficult time.
