How We Started
Cloverleaf Christian Centre is a part of the Cloverleafworld Ministries network of churches, fellowships and community projects which started as a home bible study group in October 2009 in Leeds Echo Central Towers. Just after a few months of marriage, Paul & Tasha Okhuoya launched out to start a vibrant ministry deeply rooted in the word of God and founded on the principles of a holistic gospel that spoke strongly to the spiritual, mental, physical and community aspects of human life.
They were captivated by the reality that Jesus was not just to be spoken about but to be lived out in daily experiences. Starting with just themselves, the bible study group then called “God, Wii & Pasta” grew very quickly with students and young professionals within the city of Leeds such that there was not enough room in the 2 bed-room apartment.
Soon enough the members suggested to Paul & Tasha that they needed somewhere on Sundays to continue to grow in the word and in fellowship as they did on the Wednesday study group which was a confirmation to what God was speaking privately to them about. Within a few weeks and in March 2010, Cloverleaf Christian centre was officially launched and Sunday services began in “The Blue Room” which was a rented meeting room; part of the boutique hotel “The Calls”.
Very quickly the ministry grew to have three bible study groups within the first two years and continues to grow in various fellowships across the UK and Africa with various community outreach programs committed to and living out the principle of the holistic gospel. Cloverleafworld Ministries now runs various programs from Cloverleaf House – rooted in the local community of Holbeck, Leeds.
