CLG Manila Story
Although, your beginning was small, yet your latter end shall increase abundantly. Job 8:7
CLG Manila is a church-plant and a daughter church of CLG Sydney. It started as a Bible Study group of twelve people in Gagalangin, Tondo. They held their first Sunday service on 11 December 2016 at Unit 7LM, Avida Towers, San Lazaro. CLG Manila rejoices in its humble beginnings as they claim a faith-promise based on Job 8:7. Envisioned as a soul-winning church with a view of planting churches around the nation, CLG Manila is missional in purpose and focuses on reaching out to the broken, the hurting, the disadvantaged and the marginalized.
On 26 May 2019, CLG Manila moved to 741 Solis St. Tondo, Manila, where they hold weekend worship service, prayer meeting, and Bible Study. CLG Manila is led by the founding pastor, Pastor Imelda Mesa and husband Allan Mesa. They are supported by resident pastors, Pastors Ruth and Alex Pantua, local leaders, Bro. Godofredo Sta Maria, Marilou Sta Maria, and Bro. Edwin Hipolito. Brother Jojo Yap and wife, Sister Edith of CLG Sydney has oversight of the Church special programs, events, and projects. They travel to Manila intermittently to administrate these projects and events.
