Meet RCCG Pastor Agu Irukwu, who officiated at Queen Elizabeth II’s burial ceremony

One pastor, Agu Irukwu, is currently trending online for being the sole black pastor to preside over the queen’s burial, which took place on Monday, September 19. He was one of the ministers that officiated at the funeral of Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II.

Pastor Irukwu, a former Chairman of the Redeemed Christian Church of God in the United Kingdom, who still maintains his pastoral role in the RCCG as the Senior Pastor of Jesus House, United Kingdom, is one of the eight pastors representing the churches of England at the event.

Irukwu stepped down as the chairman of UK RCCG in April 2021. He also ceased from being the Chairman of the Board of Trustees and Executive Council of the RCCG in the UK and the Deputy Continental Overseer of the church in Europe.Meet the RCCG Pastor who participated in Queen Elizabeth IIs funeral ceremony 1.png


He told the RCCG that the decision to step down from the position was personal. He however said he would maintain his pastoral role at the Jesus House as the Senior Pastor.

His being an officiating pastor at the Queen’s burial is not unexpected.

The website of the church informed that Irukwu was conferred with the inaugural Alphege Award for Evangelism and Witness by the Archbishop of Canterbury the Most Revd and Rt Hon Justin Welby at Lambeth Palace in 2016.

The award was after St. Alphege the Archbishop of Canterbury from 1006 to 1012. The Archbishop was reputed for his simplicity, wise and holy counsel, as well as care for the poor.Meet the RCCG Pastor who participated in Queen Elizabeth IIs funeral ceremony 2.png
