About Us


ECWA Goodnews Church was established in April, 1956 for the purpose of meeting the Spiritual needs of English-speaking people who came to know Christ through the weekly meetings of Youth for Christ. These Christians were taught in the English Night Bible School because they could neither speak Hausa nor Yoruba. It was this group of people that Later requested for services in English.

Worshipping at ECWA Goodnews Church is not just an activity, it is an experience. It is a series of impactful and transformational encounters that bring change to the lives of people. It is felt, seen, tasted, heard, and perceived like fragrance. It encapsulates on the outside and penetrates beyond our human fibers into the depths of the heart. Under the intense focus of the Spirit and the Word, change happens. As we come to the Throne of Grace, we are being changed.

Worship with us today.
