Site Description

Benin City will again be the site for the Feast of Tabernacles in Nigeria, located about five and a half hours east of Lagos (by road). Benin City is the capital and largest city of Edo state, southern Nigeria. Benin City is situated on a branch of the Benin River and lies along the main highways from Lagos to the Niger Bridge at Asaba and the eastern states of Nigeria.

Benin City has long been famous for its “bronzes,” ivory and wood carvings. The bronzes are actually brass work, some of which is said to date from the 13th century. Its museum has a notable collection of some of the kingdom’s early pieces. The city’s present artisans still practice the ancient method of cire perdue (“lost-wax”) casting.

Our small congregation of baptized members, their families and prospective members meet each Sabbath in Benin City. These members will worship together at the Feast of Tabernacles in Benin City. This site is not open for transfers.
