New Testament Church of God elects Bishop Claion Grandison as the next Administrative Bishop


Leading Pentecostal denomination, The New Testament Church of God (NTCG), has named Bishop Claion Grandison, who currently serves in the role of District Bishop for West Croydon, as its Administrative Bishop elect.

Claion will officially take up the role of Administrative Bishop on 1 September 2022, and will become the 7th Administrative Bishop, following in the footsteps of his predecessor Bishop Donald Bolt, who has served in the role for two four year terms.

Bishop Grandison was born in London England. He is an ordained Bishop and Senior Pastor at the New Testament Church of God, West Croydon along with his wife Sonia.

Bishop Grandison up until December 2020 was Senior Pastor at Chrisma Christian Centre NTCG for 17 years where he saw The Holy Spirit’s power at work in the ministry bringing healing to God’s people and the membership growing numerically and spiritually.

He led an extremely gifted team to engage in reaching the community through their fortnightly feeding programme, weekly senior citizens luncheon club and the Floretta’s Kids aimed at fighting child poverty. He also has a heart to raise up likeminded leaders through the Mentor Leadership Programme (MLP).

Bishop Grandison has served as a member of the National Executive Council since 2011 and is a member of the interview panel for ministers embarking on the Ordained Bishop rank of ministry.  He holds a BA in Theology from Spurgeon’s College where he is privileged to serve as a visiting lecturer.

Bishop Grandison is quoted as saying, “As the New Testament Church of God in England & Wales approaches its 70th anniversary, we must seriously contemplate not only what we do, but who we are as an organisation and state this clearly through our Ethos – Relevant, Relational, Revolutionary!”

Claion has been married to Sonia for 27 years.  Sonia, along with children Samara and Zephan, are active in the life and ministry of the church.

At the Ministers Conference held on 19th March 2022 at Daventry Court Hotel, after a few rounds of voting, the NTCG ministers present gave Bishop Grandison a clear mandate that they believe he’s the right person for the present time to lead NTCG.
