New St Joseph Catholic Church Building Umon-Okon, Essien Udim, Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria


Initially built in the early 1920’s with the available equipment and building materials at the time, St. Joseph Catholic Church in Umon had endured over 90 years of wear and tear, constantly showing the need for a total overhaul. The structural review revealed multiple defects, with a very high possibility of a building collapse.

To intervene, Building4God Outreach acquired an expanse of land of over 5,300 Sqrm, and has built and completed a new church building for the worshipping community of Umon Village, with about 500 seating capacity and modern facilities for a solemn worship in a conducive and comfortable environment.

Duration: 2013 – 2021

Project Status: Completed

Location: Umon Okon, Essien Udim, Akwa Ibom, Nigeria
