How we came about

The Full Gospel Church came into being under the guidance and leadership of Pastor Clifford Beasley in 1965. He and his wife, Mother and Father came to Ipswich to start a work for God.

In the same year, The Assemblies of God Home Missions sent Pastor David Powel along with Clifford and His wife, they organised meetings in the Arts Theatre in Ipswich and also some meetings were held in Claydon village hall. From these meetings a work was established and a hall was rented from the local C of E church at 692 Old Norwich Road in Whitton, this was in July of 1966.

It was in 1967 on the first anniversary of the church that the very first baptismal service was held, the first of many.

An opportunity to purchase the Hall from the local C of E was given to the members of the Fellowship, and this was done with the help of the Assemblies of God.

A Sunday School was established and grew to around 100 children who lived on the Whitton Estate, this was started and lead by Mr and Mrs Beasley Snr.

The Church grew under the ministry Clifford and His wife and new meetings were started to meet different needs. A Tuesday afternoon fellowship meeting along with Midweek Bible Study and Prayer time. Saturday night prayer meetings were also held in the Homes of the belivers.

In 1962 Oct/Nov, our first Wedding took place in the Church.

In 1972 Clifford and His family moved to the Midlands to continue their ministry there, leaving the Fellowship in growth.

From 1972 to 1976 Pastor Cooksey, wife and family came from South Africa.

From 1976 to 1982 Pastor Peter and Margaret Worthington and Family took up the pastorate. It was under His ministry that the house group started. The Church grew in number and in blessing. Under His leadership and with the help of the oversight, and extension was planned and carried out in 1982. This was opened by the Mayor of Ipswich, with the first Pastor as the speaker.

In January of 1984 Pastor Ray, Christine Eyre and Family took up the Pastorate and are still holding this position along with the present Oversight. We hope and Pray that the Lord will continue to bless us with souls and with the establishment of a strong and faithful Fellowship.

    CMJ 2020 Visitation Tour to SE England – Sunday 20 September 2020 to Sunday 4 October 2020

    Good afternoon.
    My name is Mrs PohLeng Spalding and I am the deputation officer working with Mrs Rosa Blandford representing The Church’s Ministry among Jewish People (CMJ) based in Nottingham. CMJ was established in 1809 taking the ministry from East London to the heart of Jerusalem. The three fold ministry is based on Education, Evangelism and Encouragement.

    Mrs Blandford will be undertaking this visitation tour. We would like to enquire if the church will be interested to have Mrs Blandford speak at one of the meetings during this period. If it is appropriate we will be happy to preach or do a presentation on the work of the mission. If there is sufficient interest in the church we are able to conduct special focus meetings on certain subjects in the Bible or perhaps about Jewish Festivals like the Passover Meal. Mrs Blandford will also be happy to speak in small groups.
    We will be starting the tour from Suffolk and Essex and hope to be in the Kent Surrey area towards the second half of the tour.
    I hope we can be of service to your church in Autumn 2020 and we look forward to receiving your response. Thank you.

    Every blessings

  3. Dear Brother/ Pastor

    Greetings of Love to all from India in the wonderful and most precious name of our Lord and Saviour Christ Jesus .

    May I be kindly permitted by you good self to introduce my self that I am Pastor. KLPMoses working for the Lord in India and preaching the Gospel where Christ is not known(Romans.15:20) with a Team of like minded Co-workers and proclaiming the love and Gospel of Jesus Christ and planting Churches in the Un-reached areas of our State of Andhra Pradesh and other Parts of India. And as the result of our Ministry, many perusing souls are coming to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and adding to Churches. And we do conduct Prayer Cells, healing Camps for the sick and needy and equipping the Spirit filled disciples to evangelize the Gospel of Christ Jesus.

    And Please pray for the Lord’s Ministry in India. It is a matter to regret that India still remains as one of the least Evangelized nation of the World. It is God’s plan and purpose to bring out mighty work of the Holy Spirit here in these last days. we ask you to join your Hands with us to pray fervently for a rain of the Holy Spirit to fall up on this nation so that we may reap the Harvest” BEHOLD, I say to you lift up your eyes and look at the fields for they are already white for the Harvest” John4:35.

    And Our Ministry runs Orphan Children Home ( for Orphans Semi-orphans, abandoned, destitute and poor and needy children. And Room and board Food, (housing –Food) as well as clothing, schooling, medical cares are provided for them. Christian orphanages have proven to be a very effective ministry. Often Orphan Children raised in the Christian Orphan Children’s Homes go on to serve Lord Jesus Christ among their own people. Who would otherwise be living on the streets and begging and stealing to survive. Please pray and be a part of our Orphan Children’s Home as Lord leads you, as we are praying for God to send prayer partners and supporters.

    There are many other Poor and needy Children in looking to get in Under Care of the Church based Orphan Children’s Home and f God allows, we are very happy to open an other one in different places where it s highly needed. Please pray for our Ministry Social activities like, Orphan Children’s Homes. Care for the poor Widow/Widower. And small relief work that we do as our resources are permitted.

    Dear Saints of the Lord, please pray for us to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the Unevangelized areas and to plant many Churches amongst un-reached people groups. And also please pray for the Orphan Children’s Home, if Lord leads you to be apart our Ministry activities, kindly let us know and do as Lord prompts you. Thanking you.
