Why Our Church
ABOUT US (WHY OUR CHURCH)
The Agape Christian Fellowship is a growing Bible-based church located in Manchester, United Kingdom. We are on a mission to see God’s kingdom established across our nation and to see people around us come together and worship the One True Living God in truth and in Spirit. We strive to serve God and his people with our God-given resources at our disposal and we are actively involved in the expansion of the Kingdom of God. At Agape Christian Fellowship, we continue toward winning and embracing souls, providing a spiritual family for believers, and serving God with all of our strength, all of our heart, and all of our mind. Our church has welcomed countless individuals and families and has helped in shaping their spiritual lives. Numerous people have been touched with the love of God and relieved of their emotional burdens and the church itself is gearing up for a revival within the city.
Agape (which means “Love” in Hebrew) shows the great love that was shown to mankind by God on the cross of Calvary. For God so loved the world that He gave His One and Only Begotten Son JESUS that whosoever believes in Him will not perish but have the gift of everlasting life (John 3:16, The Holy Bible).
The Agape Christian Fellowship Church is a congregation located in the city of Manchester, United Kingdom. Pastor Tomy Kurien is shepherding the Church. He is married to Sister Merlin, and they are blessed with three children, Kenneth, Bennett, and Timothy.
The church is blessed with a thriving Sunday School, Church Elders, Worship Team, Mission team, and Prayer teams.
The Church is blessed with children of all ages, and we have a Sunday School with around 40 children and about 8 competent teachers. The kids learn Bible-based songs and principles of the Word of God in these classes. Children are afforded the opportunity to be Students as Believers, paralleling the atmosphere provided at regular educational institutions. We want to raise up a generation that glorifies God!
The Sunday Services are enhanced by Area cell Meetings around the Manchester city, wherein believers gather at each other’s homes for Prayer Support and Bible Study. The goal of the church is that church believers are rooted in the Word of God and that each one is supported through sincere prayer and emotional support. In addition to Worship and Prayer Meetings, the church also organizes events and programs that encourage Christian Fellowship. Among these are the Christmas Outreach programs, church day outings, and residential outings. The youth of Agape church proactively support all operations of the church. We deploy our operatives toward any effort that God’s people may require. We recognize that youth is the best age range to serve God with all vigour. Thus, for such a powerful machine (church) to function for the Glory of God, we believe that it must be well-oiled and dearly maintained. Hence, we have prayer meeting every Saturdays in order to serve the spiritual needs of the congregation. We have sisters and brothers meeting, youth meeting, and fasting prayer. This is held on Saturdays from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM, where we meet and are revived in the presence of the Lord.
The formation of our church, initiated not too many years ago, has gained momentum and has led to the growth of a vibrant Christian community based on Biblical principles that prides itself on its unity and is yet humbled by the journey through which God has led them, as a group and as individuals. The Agape Christian Fellowship continues toward winning and embracing souls, regardless of colour, race, and ethnicity, building a spiritual family of believers, and serving God with all of our strength, all of our heart, all of our soul, and all of our mind.
We give opportunities for all church members to grow and we always encourage and require willing individuals to help build the Kingdom of God. We have a mission to undertake, a purpose to fulfil, a people to serve, and a God to glorify! If the Spirit of the Lord moves you to visit our worship services and join our community, we would be overjoyed to receive you into our church family. If you feel you are lonely and you need a community to be a part of, you are always welcome to join us and we hope that the love of God will flow from us and flood into your lives. God bless you!
“One thing I ask of the Lord”
This is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple. Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him. The Lord is everlasting God, the creator of all the ends of the earth.
