To mark its 60th anniversary, the Methodist Church Nigeria, Diocese of Lagos Central, Ago-Ijaye Circuit has launched a N50m fundraising to help a local church get a permanent place of worship.

The beneficiary, Methodist Evangelical Church, Ebute-Metta (East) planted more than 10 years ago has been using rented space for worship.

Speaking at the anniversary celebration, the Diocesan Bishop, Rt. Rev. Samuel Nortey said the event was dedicated toward church expansion and the money realised would be used to assist smaller churches, particularly the Ebute Metta East church to acquire their own place of worship. According to him, the Circuit is one of the oldest churches in Lagos and is known for its service to humanity. They are going to build on it by contributing more to both church and society.

He also commended the leadership of the circuit, saying several churches planted by them have transformed into circuits and diocesan headquarters.

Advising Christians to humble themselves, forsake evil ways and pray to God so that He will heal the nation, Nortey said: “We can’t pretend that Nigeria today is not a troubled nation, but our joy is that we are not consumed. I pray it will not happen. If we seek the face of God on behalf of this country, I am sure God will intervene. Nigeria is a project in God’s hand and He will not abandon His project. Soon, we will laugh in this nation.”

Secretary of Conference, Rt. Rev. Michael Akinwale said the essence of the celebration was to appreciate God for 60 years of providence. He said the challenges facing the country are natural but Nigerians must be reminded that God will not forsake them.
