History Of COP-UK Nottingham

The Church of Pentecost Nottingham started during September 2003 under the leadership of Pastor Michael Teiduku who was the District Pastor for Birmingham and Apostle Amegatser who was the National Head of UK.

The Church was started by four brethren and a baby, namely brother Partrick Opong, Brother Emmanuel Mbrokoh, Bro Isaac Mensah, Sister Comfort Mensah and baby Mateko Mensah. On the local front, Brother Partrick Opong was the main coordinator supported by bro Isaac Mensah and bro Emmanuel Mbrokoh.

An evening service was started at St Andrews with Castle Gate United Reformed Church, Goldsmith Street, Nottingham NG1 5JT. On the 3rd of October 2003, the Church of Pentecost – Nottingham branch was officially inaugurated by the District Pastor. Taking a text from 1 Corinthians 3: 5-15, the new assembly were admonished to lay good foundation through love, unity and cooperation. The members were encouraged with hope that they will look back one day to give thanks for what God has done through our hands.

At the time, the Church of Pentecost UK was affiliated with the Elim Church of Pentecost UK and we were normally known as Elicop –Nottingham Assembly. Through the grace of our Lord Jesus, God brought many enthusiatic helpers. Notable members included bro Samuel Agyena, Sister Rosemond Ashong, Auntie Maggie, Mrs Bio, Mr & Mrs Tago, Mrs Grace Mensah, Mr & Mrs Tetteh Mr and Mrs Attakrah, Mr& Mrs Tetteh, Anthony Osei-Owusu, Mr & Mrs Agustine Osei, Mr & Mrs Michael Nimo and many others.

Our first Presiding Elder was Bright Awuah who was then a student living in Stoke-on-Trent. Subsequent presiding leaders and elders who moved the Church forward were Deacon Chris Tago, Elder George Agyemang, Elder Charles Attakorah and Elder Isaac Mensah.

Up to 2009, English and Twi (i.e. a local Ghanaian language) were used in Service. On 7th June 2009, it became necessary to start a second service purely in English to reflect the local language of Nottingham. This led to the starting of the Pentecost International Worship Centre (PIWC) in Nottingham along side the main Church which is now known as Nottingham Central (Akan).
