Worshippers of Christ Embassy church asked to pay N1000 as gate-fee for New Year Eve’s service

Members of Christ Embassy Church in Lagos, South-West Nigeria, were asked to pay N1000 as gate fee for New Year’s Eve service.  Indigent members who could not afford the N1, 000 tickets, were denied access and sent back by security men at the gate, it was learnt. The church, a source said, realised about N25 million from about 25, 000 members who bought the tickets. It was gathered that the church informed its members that it decided to impose a gate fee to control the huge crowd that always besiege the church on the New Year’s Eve church service.

“Pastor (Chris Oyakhilome) said that to control the crowd and only allow genuine members who could do anything to be in church, it was good to pay a gate fee. Last year for instance, even senior pastors in the church could not secure a seat in the church on New Year’s Eve service,” revealed a credible source.


That is in addition to the exorbitant Offertory and tithes the worshippers would be persuaded to pay during the course of the ‘religious’ service. The end is indeed nigh!

    True Florence, however they could impose a first-come-first-enter basis for admission. This way it will be win-win!

    I agree with the entry fee having been to meetings by the mighty man of God pastor chris. No matter the size of venue there is never ever enough space. Praise the lord for the revival in nigeria. Keep up the good work pastor chris.

    During the time of Jesus he never asked for gate pass, he had millions of followers, he would have made more money if he did asked for money from people who wanted to meet him. God bless the church, they have there reasons.
