RCCG City of Grace, Peterborough, a Parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God Worldwide is a divinely orchestrated agenda to fulfil God’s prophetic mandate for this generation. It is a multi-cultural church where grace transforms lives and fulfils destinies. The Church is a product of the calling of God upon the Presiding Pastor, Pastor George Akinwumi who while on a prayer retreat with his ministry mentor and Senior Pastor in 2003 felt the Holy Spirit was asking him to relocate from Nottingham to Cambridge United Kingdom. He promptly obeyed this nudging of the Holy Spirit even though it was a painful decision to take such a step at the time.
On February 2004, the whole family moved to Cambridge to wait for the next leading. It was not long when the Lord connected them with a young family (now Pastor and Pastor Mrs Dapo Adegoke). The two families started a house prayer meeting and by divine arrangement met Pastor Segun Kingsley of City of David, London who has been praying to start a parish of RCCG in Cambridge. The House prayer meeting metamorphosed into City of David Cambridge in January 2005 and after about two years, Pastor and Pastor Mrs Akinwumi were sent to start a new Parish in Peterborough.
Inaugurated on the 6th of May 2007 by Pastor George Akinwumi, with 3 families at the Tyesdale Community Centre, South Bretton Peterborough, City of Grace has continued to grow and attract people from all walks of life; a family oriented church having individuals from different backgrounds and ethnic groups. The church is located on its acquired property at Grace Tabernacle 105 Wellington Street, Peterborough, PE1 5DU where lives are imparted to become better people.
The art of worship is particularly an integral part of our meetings and premised on the scriptural command to truly worship God and to love our neighbours as ourselves. The choir plays a significant role in every service both in singing and with the instruments of praise, lifting emotional burdens through spiritual music.
The Church is built on solid prayer and prophetic foundations. Apart from the regular intercessory prayer meetings, the whole church is divided into prayer squads where every member of the church is encouraged to join a group from Sunday to Saturday for one hour of intercession. The Church’s prayer and prophetic conference also holds every February.
