Our History

The Presbyterian Church of Nigeria is aware of its origins in the Reformation, especially for the enlightening ministries of John Calvin in Switzerland and John Knox in Scotland.
The Presbyterian Church of Nigeria is also indebted to the Presbyterian Church in Jamaica and the Jamaican Missionary Board for West Indies and Africa for taking the initiative to send five Jamaicans and the Rev. Hope Masterdon Waddell to Calabar in 1846 at the invitation of King Evamba V and King Eyo II and other chiefs of Calabar. The Presbyterian Church of Nigeria is also grateful to the Church of Scotland Mission for its generous support of further mission personnel bringing in the light of the gospel. The Presbyterian Church of Nigeria remembers the creation of the Presbytery of Biafra for the oversight of the congregations formed and Creek Town and Duke Town on September 1, 1858, and to be known as “The Presbyterian Church in Biafra.” The Church gives thanks to God for the memory of its first indigenous Nigerian minister, the Rev. Esien Esien Ukpabio, ordained to the holy ministry by the Presbytery of Biafra on April 9, 1872. The Church still rejoices when on May 4, 1921 the Synod of Biafra was formed, comprised of two Presbyteries. The Synod became “The Presbyterian Church of Eastern Nigeria” in June, 1952, and in recognition of its own national character and mission, in June 1960 changed its name to “The Presbyterian Church of Nigeria”.
