Zim Okoli

New Life Church Catford

Zim is a Pastor of New Life Church Catford (NLCC), leading alongside Co-Pastor Remi Adedire.  He is a Church Planter supported by the Co-Mission network (www.co-mission.org) and partnered with Grace Church Brockley to plant NLCC.  The new church has been meeting informally since June 2018, and formally launched on 9 September 2018.  The initial launch group consisted of about 13 adults and 9 kids from Grace Church Brockley who were living in Catford, but God has been drawing in more locals to join the church plant, with just over 50 in attendance at the September launch.  Church life continues to expand, with regular activities now including: Sunday worship, midweek Fellowship Groups, monthly prayer meetings, home visits to the community, street evangelism, International Cafe, regular men’s and women’s groups, and other one off outreach events.

Zim is on a sabbatical from studying theology at Oak Hill College, in order to fully support the church in its first crucial year.  Prior to NLCC, Zim was a Ministry Trainee and then Youth Worker at The Bridge Church, Battersea. He also worked for a number of years doing engineering consultancy in the Oil & Gas industry.
