Church like many others

Lagos is a small town, so are it’s churches. This one is open only for a rather short period of time and has not much to offer apart from obvious, unless one comes here to pray, then it’s a different story.

Don’t miss this in Lagos

A small church only used for special occasions. It has an historical meaning for Lagos going back to the earthquake and an Irish Sea captain if my memory serves me well but the lady we met there explained everything patiently in English for us

Check times if you want to go inside
Sep 2017
The outside is worn however if you get a chance to go into the Church it is a must. The ceiling is made of wood which I did not expect, if you want to look around please check the times of opening as there are also masses held here for the locals. The mass I viewed from the back of the church was held at 5pm and it was lovley just to stand and observe. The singing and mass was very cathartic.

A beautiful old church which is accessed through a very interesting museum. Everything in here is gold but because the church is so dark, it is hard to get the full effect.

Looks like it has a tale to tell.

This Church seems to stay closed except for Masses. In fact it is gated and locked in my experience. We attended 10am Mass there, or least we attempted to. Within minutes of arriving I felt that the Church was suffocatingly warm. I left to get water and was back in time for the Mass (in Portuguese). Even after drinking water we felt that we could not stay in the stifling heat. No air-conditioning and no fans that we could see - apart from hand-held ones used by some ladies. We just had to leave, covered as we were in perspiration. Pity. I returned after 45 minutes hoping to at least be in Communion with the community, but I found that the Our Father had barely been reached. Surely some gesture should be made to allow visitors to attend. The Church looks really interesting, but we were not aware that a museum was attached.

Great church
Apr 2016 • Solo
Closed when I arrived but the man sitting around the side kindly unlocked the door. Inside you walk the sacristy which is a mini museum and then enter the church which is very dark. I never use flash in churches out of respect even when there's nobody there and it was hard to get a good picture. The alter is marvellous in sculptured marble with corinthian decoration with statues. The nave is simple and elegant with good statues.

The church is entered via a small museum which is quite interesting with local artifacts etc. Nominal entrance fee. The church (although gold) is not that well lit and would benefit from more lighting to really make the gold shine. Wonderful carvings etc and worth a visit
