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 local 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.

In this House, people are loved. In this House, people are accepted. In this House, people are growing and will continue to grow by the grace and power of the Holy Spirit.  

Sunday at 4:00 pm

Sunday afternoon service is a vibrant expression of life and the love of God, with great praise and worship and powerful preaching from the Bible. Come along early for coffee with family and friends. We also have a pre-service prayer which starts 15 mins before the service. A full CLG kids program is available during the service in the Children’s area. Simply approach one of our Team members and let them know if your child/ren (1-11yrs) will be attending Sunday school. At the conclusion of the service, we would be privileged to host you in the service hall where you can meet the pastor and leaders, and get you connected into the church family.

We are located in the bustling area of Tondo near McDonald’s (Gagalangin) corner del Fierro and Juan Luna Streets.

If you are traveling by car, you can enter Solis Street either through Juan Luna or Abad Santos Street. If taking a jeepney either from Divisoria or from Caloocan side, your landmark would be the McDonald’s in the corner of del Fierro St. traffic light. Solis Street is a stone’s throw from there. If taking the LRT, the closest is Blumentritt  station. We are one jeepney ride from there.
