All over Britain, small groups of Christians, disillusioned with the established denominations, are setting up their own independent fellowships. They have no ordained clergy, and avoid ecclesiastical rituals.
Instead they are searching for the gifts of the Holy Spirit as described in the early Church in the New Testament. The fellowships, led by 'apostles' and 'elders', are estimated to have at least 100,000 members, and make up probably the fastest-growing religious movement in Britain.
Rosemary Hartill, the BBC's Religious Affairs Correspondent, has been visiting some of these new fellowships, talking to their critics, and exploring the challenge they offer to British Christian life. Producer DAVID COOMES long wave only

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
