The Chapel of the Annunciation started in 1978 during the princilpalship of the Revd, Canon (later Bishop) J.O.A Fabuluje with official registration of congregation as permanent members of the chapel on August 21. It was on September 24 that the inauguration of the Chapel took place. It was to provide a place of worhip to civil servants and professionals in Akure who prefered it to a traditional Anglican parish. It has since grown in leaps and bounds with English as its language of communication and worship.
