Abigail's Court

Addressing the needs of the elderly

In 1995, a vision was birthed by the late Pastor Ify Irukwu to reach out to the older and often forgotten members of our community. This vision was named 'Abigail's Court'.

Abigail's Court's area of social responsibility consists of visits to, and the establishment of relationships with about 52 Social Service homes for the elderly located in the boroughs of Barnet and Brent.

Each year for Abigail's Court ends with a 'Celebration of Life' event, held over the Christmas period, during which the lives of the residents from the homes are celebrated in the presence of dignitaries, relatives and friends.

The group's commitment to this cause has seen them celebrated and rewarded within Jesus House. In 2008 and 2009, Abigail's Court received the vote of Best Ministry.
