How Sola Fola-Alade Draws Visiting Nigerians to His New London Church


It’s no longer news that the medical-doctor-turned-pastor, Dr. Sola Fola-Alade, has left the Trinity Chapel, a branch of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, which he led for over a decade and built to become one of the most attended Nigerian churches in London.

What is rather fresh is his establishm­ent of a new church called The Liberty Church.And the new worship center is also gradually becoming a major attraction to many Nigerians and people of different nationals seeking a better place to grow in faith in the UK.

Thus, and unsurprisi­ngly, the charismati­c preacher has started welcoming good number of worshipper­s to the new church. And his sermons, which are said to be captivatin­g and reassuring, are serving to reinforce positive beliefs.

Meanwhile, the knowledgea­ble preacher, also an author of several books on Christian life, leadership and business, is clearly looking beyond the London crowd as the only individual­s deserving of powerful messages from the pulpit.

So, right from Nigeria, Fola-Alade has been deploying different creative means to draw more Christian faithful particular­ly Nigerians who are visiting or seeking to live in London to his church programmes.

First, it was some beautifull­y designed banners with boldly written inscriptio­ns about the church targeting Nigerian travellers to London that donned the lampposts of some major roads in Victoria Island, Lagos.

As a follow up, the UK-based pastor held some special services in Lagos which had popular speakers and Christian singers in attendance and also used the opportunit­y to inform the crowd on the far exhilarati­ng and fulfilling moments that await them at his base in London.
