Glory house started as Glory Bible church in March 1993 at 78 Capworth Street, Leyton.
It was founded by Dr. Albert Odulele a visionary and dynamic leader and has continued to grow and have impact locally, nationally and internationally.
Its early history is best defined in three phases. The first phase represents the residency of the church at Leyton a former funeral home. The second phase represents the period where the church used a number of public venues and halls such as York Hall in Bethnal green.
At Leyton and York Hall, as a young, growing church, Glory house committed itself to a lot of evangelism in the area, reaching out to the estates in the community and organizing crusades. Due to the increase in the growth of its members, Glory house moved to its present location, 2 Tabernacle Avenue, Plaistow in January 1997. This was the third phase and the 1st Sunday service at this new venue was on the 31st August 1997.
In the year 1999 the church changed it’s name to Glory House. A change that was necessitated by the transition the church had undergone and which reflected prophecies in Is 60:1-22 and Ezekiel 47:1-9.
