About TKFC

Our Journey

The journey started in 1987 through a vision given by God to Rev. Anthony Ashaye

The vision statement for the church goes thus

All the ends of the earth shall remember
and turn to the Lord,
and all the families of the nations
shall worship before you.
For kingship belongs to the Lord,
and he rules over the nations.
All the prosperous of the earth eat and worship;
before him shall bow all who go down to the dust,
even the one who could not keep himself alive.
Posterity shall serve him;
it shall be told of the Lord to the coming generation;
they shall come and proclaim his righteousness to a people yet unborn,
that he has done it.

Psalm 22:27-31


The King’s Family Centre started out in October 1997 in an Estate Agents Office on Vicarage Road, Stratford London E15 with her first service comprising of 4 adults and a baby boy.


After a few weeks in the Estate agents office, we moved to a 3-bed mid-terraced property two streets away from the estate agents office and there, we sojourned for about 18 months.


By late 1998, the growing church relocated to the Winsor Park Community facilities in Beckton, East London. There, the family phase of this church was established and consolidated as we were predominantly families at that time


As God grew the church, the search for a suitable property commenced and by early 2002 negotiations had commenced for the current premises in Aveley, Essex, which at that time had been empty for over a year , derelict and in a state of disrepair. During this time amidst stalled negotiations for the current premises, there were numerous searches for suitable properties.

However, by the summer of 2003 negotiations were finalised and the church moved into the current premises in Aveley, Essex by September 2003 after much refurbishment.

All our activities and services have been based at the Aveley premises until April 2011 when Sunday services had to be relocated to The Gateway Academy on account of Health and Safety concerns emanating from growth in membership and attendance.


On outreach activities, TKFC is actively fulfilling true religion accordance with James 1:27 – Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.

Currently, TKFC actively supports

From an Evangelical point of view, our main thrust is word of mouth and the testimonies of God’s faithfulness that abound . However, we do engage the newspapers in our local area for periodic adverts, trusting God for the Harvest.
