About Us

Welcome to Church of Nigeria

(Anglican Communion)

Christianity came into Nigeria in the 15th century through the efforts of Augustinian and Capuchin monks from Portugal. However, it was not until 1842 that Henry Townsend of the Church Missionary Society (CMS) sowed the seed of Anglicanism properly when he landed in Badagry from Freetown, Sierra Leone.

True Anglicanism

What does it mean to be a member of the worldwide community of Anglicans and Episcopalians?

Heart of Worship

But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. John 4:23
