The History of ACF Wolverhampton

Founders of ACF
The early years...

The Asian Christian Fellowship was initially founded by WEC (Worldwide Evangelisation for Christ) missionaries – Mr and Mrs Summers, who had a heart to reach out to the growing Asian population in the early 1970’s with the gospel of Jesus Christ. 

Previously they had worked in India, Pakistan and Tibet for a period of about 20 years.

Their arrival in Wolverhampton was an answer to prayer of a group of Christian people who were seeking someone to tell Asian people about Jesus in their own language.

To establish contact with the Asian community , bible bookshop was first opened in Pennfields, Wolverhampton, and later in Whitmore Reans. A lot of first contact was made with many Asians. Further home visits, bible studies and prayer saw many men and women turn to Jesus Christ.

In December 1974, the first Sunday evening service took place at the Darlington Street Methodist Church hall – where we have continued to meet since.

Over the many years the church grew, new believers went out and told others about the Good News they had received. Various activities were conducted by the church to reach people all over Wolverhampton and the surrounding areas.

Today, the Asian Christian Fellowship is an independent church that continues build upon the initial aim of seeing people come to believe in Jesus, but is no longer restricted to just the Asian community, as we believe the good news is meant for people of every race, age and social group. 

'and I also say to you that you are Peter and on this rock I will build my Church and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it' - Matthew 16:18
