grc chengannur was started by god almighty through pastor ashley, our seniour pastor.in 2004 may, he came to chengannur with a passion for fouls.by the month of june he hired a small hall and started a prayer meeting on every wednesday and sunday evenings.it was on 19th june 2004 wednesday, rev.p.thomas abraham (father of pastor ashley) prayed and inagurated the meeting.
on 23rd sunday 2004 along with his wife sister beulah(sweety) started to pray.it was a small begining.our pastor once said, "no one was there for the meeting, but god the almighty was with us". according to philippians 4:30 - i can do all things through christ who strengthen me.
they could feel the presence of god and saw the provision of god.now the church has grown with an attendance of 350-400 people every sunday and is located at christian college junction,chengannur .people from different parts of chengannur , surrounding places,far away places come seeking god. they get healed and delivered from all sorts of demonic powers.even though we had to go through many trials, as apostle paul says in roman 8:35 who shall separate us from the love of christ? shall tribulation , or distress, or persecution, or famine ,or nakedness or peril,or sword? in verse romans 8:37 he says.yet in all things we are more than conquerors through christ who loved us.
