Assemblies of God in Great Britain
Assemblies of God in Great Britain is a Pentecostal denomination and a part of the World Assemblies of God Fellowship, the world's largest Pentecostal denomination with a global adherence of 52.5 million people.
The British Assemblies of God came into being in Birmingham in 1924, and today the Assemblies of God has over 1,000 leaders and more than 600 churches. On October 22, 2005, the Irish Region was allowed to join with the Irish Assemblies of God, Republic of Ireland to form the Assemblies of God Ireland.
The Assemblies of God leadership structure is broken up into six regions or 'Areas': Scotland, North, Central, London and East, Wales, and West. Each area is overseen by an 'Area Leader' who come together to form the National Leadership Team. The Team is headed by John Partington, who became the leader of AOG in 2010 after leading churches in Liverpool and Exeter and also serving on the leadership team of Edge Church in Adelaide, Australia under Danny Guglielmucci.
The standard hymnal of Assemblies of God has traditionally been the Redemption Hymnal. Although as time has moved on, the style of music within Assembles of God Churches has become more varied.
