I MUST HAVE THE SAVIOUR WITH ME
For I dare not walk alone, I must feel His presence near me and His arms around me thrown. Then my soul shall fear no ill, let Him lead me where He will, I will go without a murmur and His footsteps follow still.
Lemuel Crossfield came to the U.K. in 1959. Daphne Lewin followed shortly afterwards in the spring of 1960 and on 16th April 1960, they were married. They served in their local church in Shepherd's Bush for a few years. God then gave Bishop Crossfield a dream, showing traffic lights that were green all the way from Shepherds bush to Southall. This was the mandate that Bishop used to go and reside in Southall and to start the work there.
In 1964, the Church of God Pentecostal held the original church services in the bedroom of Bishop Crossfield's home but as it grew numerically, the bedroom could no longer contain it. In answer to prayer, the Lord directed them to a minister at the Southall Baptist Church who allowed them to use the church hall on a temporary basis. In 1967, they moved to Featherstone Road where they hired the London Co-operative hall. The Church had to move again and this time they hired a hall on Brent Road, which they occupied for seven years.
