“The Black led church movement started with a small group of African Caribbean immigrants who wanted to continue their Christian journey which began in their native lands. On arrival in the United Kingdom many of them did not find places of worship that were welcoming. As a result these people created their own assemblies which catered for the spiritual needs of the new community.

As the community grew so did the Black led churches particularly in the New Testament, Apostolic, and the Church of God of prophecy denominations. These churches have been the foundation and backbone of our African Caribbean community, over the last five decades they have catered for both the Social and Spiritual needs of our people.”Bishop HD Brown
