About Us

Who We Are and What We Do


Our History


The cordiality between St. James Anglican Church, Iludun Oro, and the Churches that make up the Diocese of Igbomina West began as early as 1964 when Iludun Oro was made the seat of a District Church Council (DDC) in the then Ibadan Anglican Province, and St. Paul’s Church Agbamu, St. John’s  Church, Igbonla, St. Barnabas Church, Sanmora, All saints Church, Oke Onigbin, St Peter’s Church, Igbesi and Holy Trinity Church, Oke-Ola Oro. These churches were put under her spiritual management. In their usual demonstration of sense of solidarity and respect for age-long historical relationship when the machinery  for the creation of the Diocese was set in motion, all the churches in the Archdeaconry except All Saint’s Church, Oke Onigbin and St. Peter’s Church, Igbesi willingly agreed to join hands with St. James’ Church, Iludun Oro to form the new Diocese.

 

On the 14th of January 2010

The Diocese of Igbomina West was inaugurated with St James’ Church Iludun Oro as the Cathedral.

The Venerable James Olaoti Akinola who has been the Archdeaconry of Iludun since year 2000 was elected and consecrated the first Diocesan Bishop.
