Redeemed Church to build 3-kilometre long church auditorium
The Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, announced last week, through its General Overseer Pastor Adeboye that they will build a three kilometre long auditorium because the current one they have now, Redemption Camp, on the Lagos-Ibadan Express Way in Mowe, Ogun state which was built in 2000 with a capacity to sit one million people could no longer accommodate the millions of people who attend service there.
According to pastor Adeboye, the new auditorium will be built at the mission’s camp ground at km 46, Lagos-Ibadan expressway. Some Nigerians are already criticizing the plan saying the billions that will spent in building this auditorium, which will only cause more queues along this express way, could be used for other things, like hospital, school, farmland, anything that will provide employment - but then, bringing more souls to the Lord is a good thing! :-)
A 3km auditorium is pretty wide. Do you know how long it will take you to walk 3km? 35 minutes.
When Redeemed builds this auditorium, it will one of the top ten churches in the world in area size.
