Living springs international church (LSIC) was planted by our founder and general overseer Rev. Dr Frank Ofosu Appiah in Peckham, London, January 1989. The precise location was the North Peckham community hall which was in the North Peckham housing estates. In those days, it was a neighbourhood that was associated with a high rate of criminal activity, youth delinquency and social deprivation.
It was in this troubled and challenging environment that Pastor Frank felt the greatest need for the gospel of Jesus Christ to be shared. This ministry was birthed and was devoted to reaching out to lost humanity with a message of hope and transformation of lives through the expository teaching of the word of God.
Over the years, LSIC has continued to provide a learning environment. Through the teaching of biblical principles and truth, men and women have been inspired, challenged and motivated to discover their true purpose and potential in God.
Now in Forest Hill, the church that began with eight people has grown to become a thriving multicultural family, united in our commitment to know and serve the Lord. Our heartbeat is soul winning and we continue to be an oasis of life as well as a place of refuge, where we impact lives. Through the teaching of the biblical truth, Christian values and principles, we empower people to live victorious Christian lives and to serve their community.
