Brief Background of Kempton Park Assembly
The Church of Pentecost Kempton Park Assembly off springs from The Church of Pentecost Johannesburg District. Johannesburg District started in September 2003 under the leadership of Apostle Michael Collins Asiedu and Pastor Evans Adu Akkufo. As the church grows, other members from Kempton park joined. So, in 2006, the Presbytery decided to start a new assembly in Kempton Park under the leadership of Apostle Martin Seth Appiah and Pastor James Alfred Quaicoe. Members in Kempton Park started the church in a rented place.
New Dimension of the Church
As the church increased in membership in Kempton Park, there became a need to have a bigger place of worship. The church begun to pray for new place of worship. In October 2009, the church found a building for sale at 20 Noordrand, Kempton Park. The church under the leadership of Apostle James Willie Devans Cudjoe, approached the owners and expressed interest to buy. Apostle then contacted the International Missions office in Ghana for assistance. The cost of the building was One Million and Fifty thousand Rand (R1,050,000) excluding transfer cost.
Speaking on the topic, Apostle Emmanuel K. Gyesi Addo expressed His appreciation to the Almighty for the strength, and the resources to be able to acquire the building. He also congratulated the Leadership of the Church who initiated the acquisition of the building. He thanked God for the ministers and the members of the Church for the hard work, contribution, and putting into good use, the fund raising and all the support received.
Mrs. Elizabeth Gyesi Addo unveiled the plague assisted by Mrs. Comfort Quampah, who read the plague of Honor and Mrs Selina Quaicoe did the honors in the cutting of the ribbon.
The International Missions Director prayed that dedicated auditorium will become a place of life (salvation), healing, restoration, peace and comfort. “A place that the Lord will attend to our prayers at the time we cry unto Him, and cause His presence to be with us” he added.
The programme was well attended by people from far and near. Among the participants were ministers of the church and sister churches. The Church lifted up a militant song of praise to Glorify the Lord for a successful dedication service.
