It all started in the late evening of the last Friday in the month of March, 2001 at the living room of Mr. and Mrs. Ajayi, of 35 Bletchley Close, off Plymouth Grove, Longsight, Manchester, where the New Covenant Church, Manchester started.
Having left Bletchley Street, Sunday services began on the 1st Sunday in May, 2001 at Ardwick Housing, which has now been renamed as New Eastland Homes along Stockport Road. This venue of worship became a milestone in the history of the church because on the 10th of June 2001, the NCC, Manchester was officially inaugurated by the then Deputy General Overseer, Rev. Timothy Kolade, who was the then National Overseer in UK. Other weekly services also took place at this venue. After some time of worship, the church moved to Ardwick sports in July, 2001, but did not stay long before relocating to the former Post office, 2 Earl Walk, Longsight, Manchester M12 4HQ and finally by His grace, the church settled down at her present location, 1 Mathew Lane, Levenshulme, Manchester M12 4QW in March 2003.
Flashing back into the past, 2001 was a very remarkable year in the history of the church, and this account would be incomplete if the foundation members are not mentioned. They are Rev. and Mrs. Michael Oludipe, Mr. and Mrs. Moses Ajayi, the Adebambo family and Ire Oludipe.
Being foundation members, with the grace of God upon them, they were tirelessly coming together in the love of the Lord, and in one accord and they also did things together.
Mr. Ajayi in his words, said, The church’s growth is as a result of love, we did everything in love, and till today, we still fellowship in love”.
Regarding the expansion of this ministry, the Lord has been faithful by enabling us to have satellite centres across Manchester and Greater Manchester-Hyde, Glasgow, Trafford (Church in the pub), Crewe, Bolton, Evening service, Sheffield.
