Revd. Simeon Borokini Dedicates Mount Zion Anglican Church Sanctuary, Vicarage @ Igoba
...Sets the Church Apart for God's Service
The Most Reverend Simeon Borokini Ph.D, the Archbishop of Ondo Province and Bishop of Akure Diocese has officially dedicated the new sanctuary and vicarage of Mount Zion Anglican Church, Igoba.
He performed the dedication at an elaborate Sunday service held at the church auditorium.
The Bishop especially prayed God to set apart the building for his service.
He also prayed for as many that would come into the sanctuary to receive answers to their prayers.
On the journey so far, the Bishop thanked God for making the day a reality just as he acknowledged the commitment of the faithfuls for giving selflessly to ensure that God’s work continues to progress.
In his charge to the people, Bishop Borokini who read from 1 Kings chapter 8: verse 1-4, appealed to the people to rededicate their lives for God’s use as the Ark of God has found a resting place in their midst.
In his remarks, the Vicar-in-Charge, Venerable Fagbemi while thanking the Archbishop and other leaders of the church for personally gracing the occasion said he is very happy about the success of the programme.
He acknowledged those who conceptualized the idea of setting up the church in 2009 and nursed the vision all the way from Ijapo, and remained committed even when there was no structure in place.
One of the major highlights of the day’s event was the handing over of the Deeds of Dedication of the church and the vicarage to the Vicar-in-Charge, Ven. Dr. Stephen Fagbemi and the church warden.
Other highlights include the unveiling of the plaques for the church, the vicarage and the children’s department.
Mount Zion Anglican Church is an offshoot of All Saint’s Church Ijapo.
