Who we are
The Council of African and Afro-Caribbean Churches UK
The Most Reverend Father Olu Abiola initiated the formation of a Council after it was realised that the African community needed a united body to advance the Christian faith. Under the precept that Unity is strength, the Council of African and Allied Churches was formed in 1979 after previous attempts failed. The membership drew tremendously in the early eighties and also included churches of Caribbean origin. Due to the diversity of membership the name was changed to reflect the membership so the Council changed its name in 1986 to the Council of African and Afro-Caribbean Churches. The Council’s membership is open to all Churches that confess the Lord Jesus as the Son of God and the Saviour of the world.
If you or your parents came to the UK from any Commonwealth country before 1973, or you came to the UK from any country before the end of 1988, then we could help you get documents to show your legal status. We can also help you claim the compensation you’re entitled to.
You may be able to get help if you are confused or unsure about your legal status in the UK. You may also get help if you have suffered losses because you could not prove your legal status.
