Victory Bible Church International (UK)
will be launched a new congregation in Norwich,
on March 16
with the name VBCI Paradise Way Sanctuary
. The new church will hold its services in The Hewett School
, Hall Road, NR1 2PL in the South Hall.
Victory Bible Church International began in Accra, Ghana
in 1985 and over the past 28 years has spread worldwide with membership in Europe, America, Africa and the Middle East. The church was registered in the United Kingdom (as Victory Bible Church International UK) in 1993, as a general charitable organisation with the UK Charity Commission.
Its core area of operation is in the advancement of the Christian faith in the United Kingdom and other parts of the world. Other areas of activities involve the relief of poverty, sickness, famine and financial hardship through various practical means.
According to the Sector Overseer for VBCI – UK Bishop Clement Asihene:
“There are two kinds of ways one can live his or her life - The great King Solomon talks about life lived Under The Sun. (Ecclesiastes 1:3, 9, 2:11) Living life under the sun is full of vanity. But there is another life lived Above The Sun. That is life lived in heavenly places with Christ Jesus (Ephesians 2:6). Thus this house is going to experience the latter kind of life; Paradise Way Sanctuary.”
The Senior Pastor of VBCI Paradise Way Sanctuary, Pastor Alfred Kpodo,
said: “We are here to join in the good work being done by many great churches in Norwich and Norfolk reaching many people for Christ. VBCI Paradise Way Sanctuary is here to provide shelter for many who have lost hope in life because of disappointments, hurts and all manner of upheavals they have encountered.
“We are a Charismatic church offering people the chance of relevant Bible teachings, vibrant praise and worship; opportunity to dance before the Lord like King David danced. We also want people to have the time to pray more without ceasing (Luke 18:1-5) to receive life changing testimonies.”
The church’s service times are:
Sundays (main Celebration service) 10am – 12pm
Thursdays (Prayer and Teaching service) 7-8.30pm
Last Friday of the month (Focus Prayer Night) 7-10pm
Every quarter there is a ‘Prayer Encounter Night’ all-night prayer vigil 10pm-5am
