The Anglican Praise band, A wonderful family of worshipers to belong. Was Birthed through the vision carried by our Lord Bishop, to provide a contemporary complement of music to the traditional classical music ministrations that characterized the church. Born on the 3rd Day of January 2003 with our maiden ministration in the Church. The Praise band has continued to minister to God and inspire his Church through their ministry. The unit started with an initial membership of 11 but have grown in grace to over 30 resident members and many more who have been trained and equipped and are no longer resident in calabar.
The Activites of Praise band include Sunday ministrations in both services, intensive and detailed bible study, vocal and instrumental trainings, exciting and thorough rehearsals and various ministrations to which the unit is invited with the approval of the church authority.

“That we might be to the praise of his glory”  That has been the vision and essence of the Praise  band and as such emphasis is placed on spiritual growth and discipline of individual members.

Membership is open to all church members above the age of 15 who have the interest and are willing to serve God through music. Intending members are subjected to a written and oral interview as well as audition. Successful candidates are further placed on a probation period as may be determined by the leadership before gaining full membership.

The Unit runs a unique system of leadership. A chaplain is appointed by the Lord bishop who in turn appoints a coordinator and a team of leaders.
The leaders of the unit from inception are as follows:

We are grateful to our Father, No… our grandfather, the Arch Bishop and dean of the Cathedral the Most Rev. Tunde – Adeleye for his support, love and patience which in no doubt contributed immensely to where the Anglican Praise Band is today
