The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Alive, Chapel, Wigan was inaugurated 29th of April 2007 as a local branch in Mercure Hotel formally called Quality Hotel in Wigan by Pastor Remi Oluboba as a vision born by RCCG Breakthrough Parish Bolton under the Leadership of Pastor Wale Adeleye. In the build up, the Welfare Team of Breakthough Parish administered the Church for few weeks. After intensive prayer, the Holy Spirit led in the appointment of Pastor Christopher Iteman as the Parish Pastor.
The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) was founded in 1952 in Nigeria, following a divine revelation received by a young man whose heart had been set ablaze with an unquenchable desire to personally encounter the Supreme Being, in spite of a prevailing environment of nature worship. Seeking a fervent relationship with the God he still knew little about at the time, Reverend Josiah Olufemi Akindayomi was fired by the intuition that there was a greater power than those commonly known to his people. This pursuit of God led him to the Church Missionary Society where he was baptised in 1927. Yet, remaining largely spiritually unfulfilled, he later joined the Cherubim and Seraphim Church, an indigenous African Church that emerged from the Anglican (Episcopal) Church in Nigeria.
