Gloucester Street is part of the Church of God of Prophecy – a world wide body of believers, spanning over 125 nations of the world, however our local church began its life in Wolverhampton in 1955, in a school Hall in Red Cross Street.

Our small church rapidly outgrew the school hall and in 1965, we purchased the Methodist chapel on Waterloo Road (now the sight of the Goal Post Pub, opposite ASDA).

The church family continued to grow and we knew we needed to move to a new home, but when our chapel was deemed too unsafe (and condemned!), we had little choice but to find some new premises.

Our search for a new place to worship was disappointing as we considered many premises across Wolverhampton. But God had already made provisions for us; when all seemed lost He provided us with a piece of land, and the opportunity to build a church of our own.

After much sacrifice, and the support of many others, we were able to build our own church building and in 1986, Gloucester Street, Whitmore Reans, Wolverhampton became our new home. With the opening of the church, we also began a Community Centre which would enable us to better serve our community both spiritually and practically.

Our Church (original)

Despite the ever changing world around us, God has sustained us though many years, enabling us to serve not only people in our Community, or across our city, but people across this world. 

We work with many organisations, charities and churches to change lives and support others in their differing stages of life.  

And we pray that as people continue to join this church family, we can be an enduring presence in our community for many more years to come.
