Our Outstanding Departments

We have room for faithful men and women that want to devote their lives to the service of the Lord. Please have a review of our various departments in RCCG CITY OF PRAISE.
Welcome Team
Welcome Team
We are called to be ambassadors, welcome, pray and share one another’s burden in Christ. “Anyone who welcomes you welcomes me, and anyone who welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me.” Matt.10:40
Our defining values, caring, service and sharing in the daily burden of our visitors and members. A first time visit to a church is usually a difficult one, as such we hope to ease some of your concerns by providing answers to your questions and giving you relevant information.
We usually welcome individuals visiting our parish for the first time during our Sunday service. The pastor or a presiding minister of service usually welcomes you to our congregation accompanied with few minutes of observed prayer where you are asked to make a request to God. A member of the welcome team take your contact so as to keep in touch with you and also pay you a visit.
After the service you are given a one to one audience with the pastor as a way of extending fellowship to you. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have or to direct you to the right places for any enquiries that you may have.
Teaching Ministry
Teaching Ministry
The Sunday School Department is an arm of the Directorate of Christian Education within the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG). As a parish of RCCG, City of Praise lay strong emphasis on Sunday School, and it is seen as a very crucial and foundation department within the church. It is an avenue to promote not only the spiritual growth of the individual member but also that of the entire church.
Essentially, the Sunday School serves as a forum through which the truth about the undiluted word of God is taught, discussed expantiated and digested with the sole aim of building a strong foundation for the students. It provides an avenue for building committed and dedicated individuals who are regarded as soldiers for Christ.  Through the Sunday school, the students are taught and helped to acquire more knowledge and understanding about God and His word through the help of the Holy Spirit; and this ultimately help them to discover the treasures that are hidden in the word of God. 2 Tim. 2:15, Joshua 1:8.
The main objective of the Sunday school is to raise an end time army of people who are well rooted and grounded in biblical doctrines and teachings of the word of truth. It also aims at raising believers who are prepared to carry the banner of Christ through holy living in this generation. Various topics of interest, particularly topics on biblical doctrines are taught at the Sunday school. One of the benefits of the Sunday school is that students have the singular opportunity of asking questions, sharing their experience and making their own contributions during the teaching sessions. This is an opportunity that is not available during regular Sunday service.
At present, we hold Sunday school classes every Sunday from 10.15- 11am, and we currently run three classes as follows: Joshua class, Caleb class and the Youth/Teenagers class; and there are five teachers who helps in running these classes. The teachers meet every Tuesday from 11am - 1pm to conduct a review of the different topics to be taught prior to the teaching in the class. We have materials such as the teacher’s manual, students manual and the workbook which consists of weekly assignments to be completed by the students. The materials are globally used by all RCCG parishes worldwide and are provided by the church. These are purchased with a token amount by the students. These materials are very useful in aiding the learning process by both the teachers and the students.
Finally, Sunday School Department would like to use this forum to encourage every member of the church to belong to the Sunday School through regular attendance and active participation in the teaching sessions and the various class activities.
Thank you and God bless.
Sunday School Co-ordinator.


Usher Team
Usher Team
Church Ushers are servants, watchmen and hosts. Do you want to serve God with your talents- time, cheerfulness, warm and hospitable welcoming smile? Then the ushering department is a place to be and you will be amazed what God will do in your life and through you.
The members of this group are responsible for providing a welcoming and comforting atmosphere of worship, e.g. by making sure that the worship environment is clean and conducive to all members and guest of the church. They are responsible for the seating arrangements, dissemination of information during the services and ensuring free flow of activities during and after a service.


The Praise Choir
The Praise Choir
The City of Praise Choir are people sold out to worship. We realize that the whole world was made by God and count it a privilege to be called His own. Worship is an essential part of the Christian Faith and one of the ways in which we love to worship God is through music. This joy that we have, we share with everyone around us. Been a part of choir requires dedication, commitment and love for music through God.
We meet regularly to practice and learn new songs, which we minister to the congregations to encourage them in their walk with Christ and to lift up the name of the Lord.
We are committed and passionate about singing praises and worshiping God with our beautiful voices and instruments that God has given us. Hymns are essential part of our worship services.
We would like to invite you to one of our services and believe that you will experience the tangible miraculous power of God in our service. There’s something unique and electrifying in our time of praise that draws every worshiper into the presence of God.


Intercessory Ministry

This ministry focuses on supporting the Pastorate in prayer, interceding for the church and its members. The intercessors pray concerning major church events and the weekly services. They also take prayer requests from the congregation
Members of this department set time aside to pray and fast together taking all issues and burdens before God. This is effectively the engine room of the church as they work endlessly behind the scenes, praying hard for the church, the ministers, the members and whatever needs has been brought to their attention specifically
