The stage is set for a wonderful experience.
The spiritual and physical bond holding the house of bishop, the house of clergy and the house of laity is often re-energized at every Synod session, a time when they formally converge to strategize and chart a fresh growth path for the diocese and take a unified stand on other ecclesiastical and secular issues of interest.
To the glory of God,All Saints’Church Wuse is ready to host the 3rd session of the 9thSynod of the Abuja diocese from 19th May to 22nd May 2016.
About 350 participants will attend the synod whose theme is ‘The Poverty of Riches” . Although strictly speaking, a synod is a diocesan affair,the host Church/Archodeaconry largely determines the success of a synod through the mobilization and management of resources.
All Saints traditional hospitality is a sure banker!
The archdeacon and supervising priest of Wuse archdeaconry, the Ven. Andrus Ukaejiofo proudly and warmly welcome His Grace The Primate of all Nigeria (Anglican communion) and Bishop of Diocese of Abuja the Most Rev Nicholas D Okoh to the epoch making occasion of the 3rd session of the 9th synod being hosted by our archdeaconry, we also welcome our Mama Nigeria Mrs. Nkasiobi Okoh, members of the clergy and all the delegates to the 3rd session of the 9th synod, we wish the primate and the synod a fruitful and hitch free deliberations.
It’s the Lord’s Doing
It is a priviledge to host a Synod. Like every keystone event, for success to be assured, a lot of prayers, planning and resources must be deployed. This is what we have faithfully done in All Saints’ Church, Wuse Abuja.
We thank our father in the Lord, our Bishop and Primate of all Nigeria.
We thank Mama Primate. We thank all the diocesan officials. We thank all the clergy and their wives. We thank all our guests.
The saints do not shy away from taking the bull by the horns. As expected, the entirecongregation rose up to the occasion.
They fervently deployed their resources. Severally, the LOC met to strategize. Well done faithful saints. May the gracious God replenish your labour of love abundantly. Everything well done gives joy and satisfaction. We thank the Lord for empowerment and for putting gladness in our hearts. To Him alone be all the glory.
