National Ecumenical Center

The National Christian Centre (previously known as the National Ecumenical Centre and sometimes known as the National Church of Nigeria) is a non-denominational Christian church building, located in Abuja, the capital of Nigeria.

The church was designed in a Postmodern version of the Neo-gothic style by Nigerian architectural firm, Darchiwork Group; located in Lagos.

The project was started around 1989, then lay dormant for several years until 2004, when the Christian Association of Nigeria organized a committee to ensure its speedy completion. The dedication, on 2 October 2005, coincided with the celebration of Nigeria’s 45th anniversary as an independent nation.[citation needed]

The dedication service was presided over by the Most Reverend Peter Akinola, the Anglican Primate of Nigeria.[1]
