STREET CHURCH: See The Social Media Page Using Street Language To Preach The Gospel Of Jesus Christ


You might have come across those yellow and black images on social media platforms that feature Bible passages laced in pidgin English and slang.

From Instagram stories to Whatsapp status updates, the images courtesy of Street Church, a Nigerian religious group, often go viral as they preach the good news with a mix of street cred.

Created on February 22, 2021, Street Church’s motto is “the gospel according to the street.” And many Nigerians on social media are relating to that.

Every morning, as people crawl out of bed, they start their day with the Bible passages which are shared alongside expressions very common among Nigerians, often in Pidgin English.

“The idea is to church the unchurched,” ‘Tobi Oreoluwa, a creative entrepreneur and founder of Street Church, told Newsmen.

“We want to reach people that would normally not want to relate with the church or have related with the church in the past but lost touch.”

Less than a month after its emergence, it has become the fancy of many, including non-Nigerians.

On Thursday morning, the day’s gospel was taken from Ephesians 2:8-9, which talks about God’s saviour of mankind.

“Na tree near tree, no be say Monkey sabi fly,” Street Church had told its more than 70,000 followers at the time, driving home the message as best as it could.
