Trinity House will be celebrating its sixth anniversary on Sunday July 24, 2016 at the church’s main auditorium, Zion Centre, situated on Trinity Avenue, through Water Corporation Road, off Ligali Ayorinde Street, Victoria Island, Lagos. The event will hold by 9.00 am.
Inaugurated on Sunday July 18, 2010 at the Civic Centre in Victoria Island, Lagos in a ceremony witnessed by church leaders and large cross section of the Nigerian society, the church is a non-denominational, free flow Christian worship centre powered by leaders, professionals and leaders to be with the vision to build a people of change, influence and impact.
The church, which obtains its motto from the book of Acts chapter 10, verse 38, “Everywhere he went he was doing good,” intends to be a voice to leadership across all spheres of society and challenge leaders to do the right things in the right way that will bring about a positive change. Speaking at a media conference held on Monday July 18 to herald in the series of events for the anniversary, the Senior Pastor of the church, Pastor Ituah Ighodalo said, "We intend to ‘take the church out of church’ to meet the people and their needs."
The sixth anniversary celebrations began on Saturday July 16 with a six-hour praise program organised by the women’s group of the church, The Timeless Woman. It featured artistes such as Tope Alabi, Efe Nathan, Big Bolaji, Onos, The Trinity Voices amongst others. This will be followed by an anniversary praise night on Wednesday July 20 by 6pm. On Thursday July 21, the church will be hosting youths to an entrepreneurship summit. The event, tagged ‘Today’s Youths, Tomorrow’s Leaders’, is being organised by the church’s leadership training school, the Trinity Leadership School (TLS). Pastor Bayo Rotimi, the minister in charge of the TLS said this is another of the church’s own way of contributing to the development of the Nigerian nation through the capacity development of her youths. The event will feature speakers such as Leke Alder, Tara Fela-Durotoye, Peter Bamkole, Kate Henshaw, Fisayo Okunsayo and Funke Soyibo.
The Trinity Leadership School is one of several initiatives of the church set up to achieve its vision of bringing the impact of Christianity beyond Christians and the immediate Church into the larger society. With its 14 NGOs and various welfare programs, Trinity House is a church that goes beyond the walls of church to reach society to change lives and transform nations. Pastor Ighodalo noted that the Church must become actively involved in nation building, governance and politics. “Nigerian youths need to be mentored to start taking up their rightful leadership positions. The military incursion into Nigeria robbed us of that natural process of succession but now sixteen years after democracy has taken roots, it is time to start thinking of the future and the government cannot do that. Individuals, organisations, churches must step into that role”. He commended the Buhari administration for its anti-corruption drive noting that the rot and decay in the system is quite deep and will take time to heal. He however also enjoined the government to come up with a clearer vision of where the Nigerian nation is headed both economically and politically.
