No. 965 - Rocherlea - The House of Prayer Bible Fellowship International

Rocherlea is an outer northeastern suburb of Launceston. The area was previously known as Rocher’s Lane, which was the location of Rocklands, a house built by Charles Rocher, a barrister of the Supreme Court. The suburb was developed in the 1960s with the construction of public housing.

The House of Prayer Bible Fellowship International is a non-denominal church located in a former supermarket on Blackwood Drive. The church was founded by Pastor Abdul-Karim Kamara. The congregation met at a number of locations before it found a permanent home at Rocherlea in 2015.

A feature of the church is its multicultural character with members of the congregation drawn from across the globe and this is reflected in the church’s name. 

Additional information about this church is welcomed as all articles are continually updated. I can be contacted through this page or my Facebook page "Churches of Tasmania" which is linked here: Churches of Tasmania.
