Tayo Adeyemi was born in Leeds, England to Nigerian parents. He left England, at an early age, for Nigeria where he had all his formal education and graduated as a medical doctor.
While in medical school, Tayo was instrumental in founding a students’ fellowship, which grew to a movement of more than 3,000 students in well over 30 Nigerian Universities and colleges in a space of five years. He was also actively involved in starting three chapters of the Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship in different parts of the country.
He returned to England with the intention of pursuing a residency programme in General Surgery and later, Neurosurgery. It was in the midst of this pursuit that God called him to start New Wine Church, which has now grown to a strong congregation of approximately 2,500 members in the London Borough of Greenwich.
Tayo is recognised as one of the strong leaders of the 21st century church and as a significant prophetic voice in the United Kingdom. He communicates God’s word with such sharp prophetic insight that his ministry has helped shape the destiny of many churches across the earth. His visionary leadership has made New Wine Church one of the leading dynamic churches in the UK. Out of this vision, a sister church was planted in the Twin cities of Minneapolis and St Paul in 1997.
Alongside pastoring a church, Tayo’s ministry is highly sought after around the world; and he addresses well over 300 audiences every year. Besides travelling extensively around the UK, he has ministered in nations such as Australia, Cote d’Ivoire, India, Kenya, Malaysia, Netherlands, Nigeria, Norway, South Africa, Tanzania, United Arab Emirates and the United States.
