The Ilford Recorder, a local newspaper for the Ilford area of east London, reports today that
A CONTROVERSIAL bishop has set up a new church in Ilford and hopes to “break down barriers” in the community.
Bishop Michael Reid’s new church, What God Can Do Ministries, meets twice weekly …
This is the first I have heard of this – and the first link to it that Google Alerts has given me. But I’m not sure if it is in fact something very new. The events calendar at Michael Reid’s own website implies that these regular meetings at a sports centre have been going on since 9th May, but this could have been backdated unintentionally.
This is of course the same man who
stepped down from [his previous church] after admitting having an affair with a church member.
Although Bishop Reid does seem to be back with his wife Ruth, who is in fact named as the contact for these new meetings, he has shown no sign of repentance for his adulterous affair.
