Who We Are
We love God above all things
“N’ihi na Ihere ozi oma ahu adigh-emem: n’ihi na o bu ike nke Chineke rue nzoputa nye onye o bula nke kwere; onye-Ju na mbu, na onye–Grik kwa. Ndi Rom 1:16.”
“I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. Romans 1:16.”
Africans are inherently religious and religion has a very strong influence on the Igbo culture. In fact, it will be difficult to separate the Igbo people’s culture from their religion and language. The Igbo church will seek to provide that link between very far away home and the present, and might be the only credible forum to unite Igbo speaking British families in London.

What to Expect
- To provide the environment in which the Igbos in London will express their style of worship freely in their native tongue.
- To create that credible community where our children will be taught the word of God exclusively in Igbo language- including Mother’s Union, Anglican Youth fellowship, and Bible study.
- Our goal is Missional. It is the proclamation and defence of the gospel throughout the world, in and through Angl ican churches, especially amongst Igbo’s in United Kingdom.
- To preach the biblical gospel so that all over the world people will have the transforming experience of coming to know Christ through repentance and faith by the power of the Spirit.
- To defend the gospel and the people of God against their spiritual adversaries.
Therefore, the Igbo Church, shall be a gathering that will seek to remind us as a people that: regardless of what the world throws at us, regardless of what the world think of us, regardless of what the world think about God, It is impossible for us to separate ourselves from the concept of one God. Romans 8: 38-39.
‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’ Acts 17:28
This is what the Igbo Church will do, to bridge the gap between the far away home and the present: Our children will be exposed to their heritage, they will learn Igbo language – Sunday School, our women will be reminded of the good culture of our land – Mothers Union, and men will be reminded of their responsibility in a family according to our culture and tradition, but in ways that will not threaten the community that we live. No wonder the Igbo people love the song, “Le ka osi di nma bu nzuko nke umunne” Psalm 133:1
