Chapel of Goodnews, formerly known as The Hospital Christian Fellowship, started in Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital (ABUTH), Zaria and Malumfashi.
The group has existed in Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital (A.B.U.T.H) since Medical Students first moved from Main Campus to start part III (clinical years) in 1969. The original meeting place was the Chapel of the School of Nursing.
The Hospital Christian Fellowship (HCF) was formally launched in the then Seminar Room, later turned to Hospital Canteen. Prof. E. H. O. Parry (then Professor and Head of department of Medicine) was the most senior member and adviser.
It's initial members were mainly doctors, nurses, technologists, pharmacists, nursing/midwifery/medical lab./medical students and other paramedical staff.
Our Vision and Mission
God’s plan for Chapel of Goodnews is to be a neutral ground for Christian fellowship and to serve in uniting the body of Christ. It serves as rallying point for other churches.
It has served as a training ground for other ministries and was nicknamed ‘a Bible school’ and not a church. The church is being modeled as a prototype for the body of Christ and an experimentation of Presbyterian system of leadership.
