At the New Testament Church of God (Leeds) the most important members of our congregation are our visitors, whether you are visiting through a desire to seek the truth, or you are simply worshipping with us whilst away from home, our church is designated as a sanctuary for all regardless of colour or creed. As such we have made every effort to ensure that your visit is a blessed one. If you have never experienced a modern pentecostal church before then please see our "What to expect" section below. Also be encouraged that if you have children then they are equally welcome.
Below are the regular worship service times held by the church. When planning your visit please check the upcoming events panel on our home page for any additional services that may be taking place, for example over Easter or Christmas, or for the rare occurrences where evening service may be not be taking place.
Sunday Morning Worship and the Word: 11am - 1pm
Sunday Evening Worship and the Word: 6pm - 8pm
Please note also that currently once a month our evening service is conducted by our young people and approximately once a month also the Sunday evening service is given over to the Biblical Studies programme with Pastor Parry, again see the upcoming events panel for the exact dates and times. For information about other public meetings either see the weekly programme section or alternatively contact our office via telephone or email.
What To Expect
Our Sunday morning service generally consists of prayer, worship in singing (during which the congregation is free to sit, stand kneel or dance), collection of an offering, culminating in a preached message. Nevertheless as Proverbs 16:1 (AMP) declares:
The plans of the mind and orderly thinking belong to man, but from the Lord comes the [wise] answer of the tongue.
Therefore although services are structured, this is not to such a degree that fails to acknowledge the sovereignty of the God in our midst. As such full liberty and reign to direct the service is always in the hands of God through his Holy Spirit whether it be to direct the service collectively or to meet the needs of a particular individual. Led by God our services are always by nature orderly, just not necessarily always the order we have planned.
The gifts of the spirit described in 1 Corinthians 12 of the speaking in and the interpretation of tongues are on occasion exercised by individuals within our services.
You'll see everything from jeans to suits to traditional African dress, the New Testament Church of God is for everyone.

Please note that on evenings cars are required to use their parking lights on Easterly Road. and to bear in mind the access requirements for the residents of Upland Road. Thank you.
You will be greeted by our friendly welcome team at the door who will be happy to assist you with any questions you may have as will any of the ushers present in the sanctuary who you will be able to to identify by their gold lapel name badges.
