A small church only used for special occasions. It has an historical meaning for Lagos going back to the earthquake and an Irish Sea captain if my memory serves me well but the lady we met there explained everything patiently in English for us

paid a visit to this church. It also contains a small museum. The ceiling was being restored when we were there, but it was still worth the visit. €3 fee to enter, but discovered it was free on Wednesdays.
