A church which has been fined for noise offences caused by their 3am services say, they won’t stop – because that’s the time when “demons are active”.
The Kingdom Church in Camberwell, south London, faced a fine of £7,740.50 earlier this month after residents nearby complained about sleepless nights.
But the church leader has insisted that the “loud preaching” and “amplified music” on Saturday mornings will go on because of their “religious beliefs”.
Bishop Climate Irungu says that they have worked on solving noise issues by soundproofing with a new floor and ceiling.
The nighttime is “the time when we’re dealing with spiritual things, when the spiritual world is busy. That’s the time when demons are more active, when people are asleep, that’s when they will come,” Irungu said.
The 41-year-old, who heads up 400 churches worldwide,says people come from far and wide to be helped by the services at the Pentecostal Kingdom Church with their troubles including sickness, financial hardship and “demonic soul ties”.
He said that hate mail from atheists and “people like witches and Satanists” will be dealt with by God.
“I’m hoping that people who have been mocking us, people speaking bad things – God is going to deal with them.”
“Our 3am service has helped hundreds of people whom have all shared their testimony about what God has done for them,” he said.
