Nibo Anglican Community Marks Centenary

Nibo Anglican community yesterday rolled out the drums to celebrate one hundred years of coming of the Anglican Church to Nibo.

The early missionaries arrived Nibo in 1905, bringing to the people, the gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Jubilant faithful, in their numbers, who received the Head of the Anglican church in Awka Dioceses, Right Reverend Dr. Alexander Ibezim at Eke Nibo, held a road procession led by the Boys Brigade band, to Saint Matthews’ Anglican church Nibo, for what can best be described as a service of the Saints.

In a sermon, Bishop Ibezim expressed gratitude to God that within a space of one hundred and twelve years, Nibo Anglican community has recorded tremendous growth in evangelism, Education and physical development of the town.

Bishop Ibezim warned the faithful not to allow the fire ignited by the early missionaries to extinguish and charged them to remain effective Christians and eschew idolatry.

Saint Matthews’ Anglican church, Nibo, the parent church, has given birth to other seven churches , four of which have attained parish status while Nibo Archdeaconry has given birth to two others namely Amawbia and the most recent, Mbaukwu Archdeaconries .

Highlight of the centenary celebration include the pronouncing of Saints Andrew and James, as parishes, and Mbaukwu archdeaconry while prayers were offered for Nibo community, the state and the growth of the church.
