It was a cold winter of 2nd of January, 2003 when two men were praying in a living room in the city of Sheffield earnestly seeking the Lord and to specifically know His will regarding what to do in the city of Liverpool.
At this period, the city of Liverpool’s was celebrating and preparing for her nomination as the next “European Capital of Culture” for the year 2008, tagged: 'The World in one city'.
While praying there was the deep desire to also see the City of Liverpool transformed and rather become ‘European Capital of Christ’. A place where people of all nations would encounter and experience the Love of God.
These prayers was what transformed a home fellowship in Liverpool, that began with a family of four: (two adults and two young children) to the prophetic “Love Assembly” with the Vision to grow into a Church congregation where people from all nations of “The World in one city” would find unity in the LOVE of God in one ASSEMBLY.
OUR VISION STATEMENT:
“To see people from all nations in the unity of the faith and love of our Lord Jesus Christ”
Love Assembly is a Parish of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, for more information about The Redeemed Christian Church Of God (RCCG), please click here
Fola and WuraFola and Wura met when both of them were at individual crossroads in 1996.
At this time, Fola had to decide to settle in a city he never wanted to live, and was earnestly seeking to know his purpose in life.
Fola, had earlier committed his heart to the Lord in December 1986.
"I prayed, God, if you are real then reveal yourself to me...and I promise to serve you for the rest of my life" This captures Fola's story and walk to date.
Wura had a conversion experience in 1993 on her sick bed in hospital where she made a vow to dedicate her whole life to Jesus. In 1995, her plans to relocate to the UK, her country of birth, was frustrated and delayed. Disappointed, discouraged and praying, she later understood the delay was a divine set up to meet her husband, marry and relocate to the UK to both serve as missionaries.
Fola and Wura met in 1996, while in the same city and married 1998.
Fola, Wura and their two sons started prayer and bible study meetings in Liverpool in their small living room in 2003, this family fellowship grew into the local Church - Love Assembly, Liverpool.
Together with a dedicated team of Christians, they serve in leadership of the local church reaching out to the city of Liverpool and Merseyside region of the UK..
