Meet Sharp and Nnenna Ugwuocha at the RCCG House of Praise Dundee

Updated: Aug 7, 2023

In these exclusive interviews for Woven Together, we meet Sharp Okorie Ugwuocha, engineer and Pastor of RCCG House of Praise Dundee and his wife Nnenna, a biomedical research scientist.

The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) was founded in Nigeria in 1952 and has become one of the fastest-growing churches in the world, with over 32,000 parishes in over 180 countries. The House of Praise is one of these parishes. It came to Dundee in 2010 as an off-shoot of the Fountain of Love RCCG Church in Aberdeen. Originally in rented space in a cinema, it moved to proper premises at 145 Kingsway East when it took over the former St Vincent de Paul RC Church. The building is now fondly known as the Praise Centre.
