The Community Outreach Ministries was called and ordained by God to rebuild the broken spiritual walls of our communities. We believe our mandate is similar to that of Nehemiah which is that it must be a community orientated Church set up to rebuild the broken spiritual walls of our community. The idea to fulfil this vision was conceived in July 1997 but the inauguration of the Church took place on Sunday 7th of December at the Woodpecker Childcare Centre where we stayed for two years. After a number of changes in buildings/places of worship; we are now worshipping in our own building based in Peckham (London Borough of Southwark). This facility has given us the opportunity to plan and host various programmes which have been a real blessing to the local community.
The vision of the Community Outreach Ministries is to cater for the whole of mankind’s needs; to empower and enrich spiritually, socially, physically, culturally, educationally and economically through biblical truth; discipleship and teaching, declaring the truth of the word of God, and helping to build our community to be a vibrant and effective place for all to live in.
We are proud of our name, vision and mission. We are profoundly grateful to God today, for all the men, women and children he has brought together in this family and community based church. We thank God for all the friends of Community Outreach Ministries, for his grace and mercy and look forward to the years ahead with great expectation of what the Lord can and will do in our midst. We wholeheartedly welcome you today as you join us in giving thanks and praise to our master Jesus Christ, the head of the Church.
On behalf of the Board of trustees, the Ministerial Council and the entire family of this church, I say thank you from my heart and we look forward to continual fellowship with you
