Protest against abusive "Bishop" Oyedepo: Saturday 16th August 6pm - 8pm

Child abusing, woman hating, witchcraft accusing, evangelical pastor, the so called 'Bishop' Oyedepo from Nigeria, is holding witch hunting services here in the UK to spread his poisonous preaching against women and children.

His Pentacostal church, known as Winners Chapel, which has branches in several countries, is staging the European Winners Convention in Dartford, Kent, on Saturday 16th August. There is a clear and present danger to women and children from these services. Not too long ago, Bishop Oyedepo assaulted a girl at one of his ministration events in Nigeria. He accused the girl of being a witch. But the girl denied this saying she was a ‘witch for Jesus’. And in reaction, Bishop Oyedepo slapped her.

A nine-year-old girl collapsed and died during a prayer session at the Winners Chapel branch in Bamenda, Cameroon. The pastor accused the girl of being possessed by numerous demons and whilst he was “casting out” the demons the girl fainted and died.

There is strong evidence of the links between cases of witchcraft related abuse of children and the activities of Pentecostal churches in Black communities in the UK.

Pentecostal pastors like David Oyedepo are engaged in an effort to spread their ministry to Europe. They are re-exporting an Africanised Christianity with an emphasis on demon possession, exorcism and witch hunting. They are targeting African immigrant communities. They are not welcome here. They must be stopped. We are planning to hold the demo outside the venue of Winners Chapel European Convention. It is likely that the Nigerian human rights activist Leo Igwe will attend this protest. Please let everyone know about this protest by social media, email and any other means. Also please come along with posters, banners etc and show your support for vulnerable women and children.

    I went to the protest, but there was no Bishop Oyedepo, no service, and no protesters! What happened?

      I wonder, did they switch times due to fear of protesters do you think?

    Am I right in saying that there is or at least was some kind of protest to stop this man from entering the U.K. and if he is here, how does he intend to stop or eliminate any so called witches he may think he comes across? Can anyone tell me please? How is this legal?

      I'd be more worried about the followers resident here . Dare say there's a fair few of them into FGM and devil banishing techniques

      Already signed the petition against F.G.M. and not sure why there is not a petition for M.G.M.. well at least not that I am aware of anyway?

    Must share this with you all. Something unexpected happens at this exorcism... about 50 seconds in. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7sQ9plnfDVw

    If anyone would like a lift to the protest against Oyedepo, London Black Atheists are meeting at Burgess Park, London SE5 0RJ from 12pm to 5pm for the Africa Live festival, and then going to Dartford by cars.

    I cannot make this, but they recently had a very large poster erected on a billboard just down the road from me. Makes me sick. :(

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
