Jehovah's WitnessesJehovah's Witnesses are members of an international Christian new religious movement, whose adherents believe it to be the restoration of first-century Christianity. The religion was developed in response “to what they saw as compromise and corruption in mainstream Christianity.” hey dispute doctrines such as the Trinity, hellfire, immortality of the soul, and clergy-laity divisions as illegitimate additions to the original Christian teachings.Magnifying glass image

Assemblies of GodAs a result of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at the turn of the 20th century, thousands of Christians were impacted by the power of God’s Spirit and the Pentecostal Church was ignited. A number of Pentecostal networks were established between 1912 and 1920.
In Birmingham in 1924 the British Assemblies of God came into being. From those early days, leaders and churches worked for the expansion of the Kingdom of God.
Our early leaders gave the wider Church much of its teaching on Pentecostal doctrine through writing books and travelling. Donald Gee and Howard Carter were two who travelled the world to tell people about the new understanding of the Holy Spirit’s activity in the Church.
The Movement grew and many different departments were added to its ministry, reflecting our desire to plant churches and assist the growth of our people in the things of God. Today Assemblies of God has over 1,000 leaders and more than 600 churches with many specialised departments ministering at home and abroad, making us one of the largest Pentecostal denominations in our country.

CokelersThe founder, John Sirgood was born at Averring, Gloucestershire, in 1821. The nickname 'Cokeler' is of very early date, and is popularly attributed to Sirgood's preference for cocoa rather than beer.Most aspects of Dependent belief are fairly orthodox within the Arminian traditions of Protestant dissent. They believed firmly in the people's ability to exercise free will and thereby achieve salvation. Thus, in the nineteenth century, they were closer to Primitive Meth­odism for example, than to Congregationalism which was still strongly Calvinistic in its belief in predestination. Like Quakers though, Dependents were and are avowed pacifists and were conscientious objectors during two world wars. Notes from the web site quoted Magnifying glass image
