What We Do
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.
Assemblies of God is in the process of denominational transformation!
This is an exciting journey. It does, however, require the leadership to bite the bullet on a number of important challenges facing the Church today. Please pray for us as we do just that!
Our journey will enable us to see a new day where church growth will be accelerated, local churches repurposed for mission and an increased relational dimension enjoyed by all our leaders.
The Assemblies of God is seeking to become a relevant and powerful expression of the Church to the community. The Fellowship recognises the importance of the Universal Church and therefore sees its development in this context.
What we do
We aim to serve the people of Great Britain through its network of around 540 local churches. These churches may vary in style and size, but all are committed to connecting people to Jesus through a variety of ministries. Many have comprehensive children's, youth and young adults' ministries as well as teaching, training and community ministries.
As a movement, we want 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."
We are committed to reaching out to people of all ages and from all walks of life including those who are often marginalised by society like young offenders, prostitutes, the homeless, the elderly and the disabled. We also believe in showing God's love to people in practical ways, whether through food banks for people in desperate need, or debt counselling and rehabilitation centres, for example.
In addition to helping those in our local communities, we are passionate about issues that affect our wider world, such as sex trafficking, child slavery, poverty and injustice. We provide a variety of short-term mission opportunities supporting and developing projects overseas, all of which aim to demonstrate God's love for His people.
As a movement that is constantly growing, we seek to plant churches both at home and abroad, and we provide comprehensive training for our ministers through our connections with bible colleges worldwide, and through our own college, Mattersey Hall, which is based at our National Ministry Centre in Doncaster.
