Welcome to the United Pentecostal Church in Chennai. We are a Church that walks in apostolic power and believes in the apostolic doctrine. The Church believes in the Lord and the values the Lord has been vocal about. Keen about the roots secured and anchored firmly in the Holy Book of the Bible, we possess a vision for tending to communities around the world. The UPCC embraces its mission to carry the record of Christ to the whole world.

PROMISE FOR APRIL 2020: “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” Jeremiah 29:11

Our Pastor


Pastor Hobday was called to the Great Commission in 2004 before Inspired by Bishop. Willoughby, the vision of impacting people fell upon his shoulders. He shared his vision with the Church and now the UPC Ayanavaram has impacted many lives. He is a man of commitment, far sighted, meticulous, and a man who loves his eggs sunny side up. The voice of the Lord and the Word are his armor and Worship is his life. He believes that he would rather be David who danced in front of the ark unmindful of circumstances, rather than to partner with Mica who laughed at the worshipping spirit. As we fondly call him, he is a tradition breaker and loves to wear black. He is married to Sis. Sandhya, who serves in the church in all capacities, is a practicing dentist, and believes in being apostolic 24/7. They are blessed with two daughters Samara Tanya Hobday being the eldest and Ziona Ahava Hobday the youngest.
