About Kingdom Bank

Kingdom Bank is a Christian bank, established in the United Kingdom in the 1950s. The bank was founded by a pastor, George Oldershaw, to finance the growth and development of UK churches after he found it difficult to secure lending for church properties from traditional High Street banks.

The company became a charity, named Assemblies of God Property Trust, in 1954 and received its banking licence in the 1980s. Kingdom Bank is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Property Trust and was founded in January 2005.

As a Christian organisation, the Christian faith informs all of Kingdom Bank’s activities. Profits are donated to good causes and the bank focuses on improving lives through the development it offers to churches. Staff at the bank are given time to pray and directors and staff go on annual Christian retreats.
