The Church of the Province of West Africa is a province of the Anglican Communion, covering a number of sees in West Africa.


It was established on 17 April 1953 by the bishops of five West African dioceses, with the consent of the Archbishop of Canterbury.


In February 1979, the new Church of Nigeria was inaugurated, while the Dioceses of Accra, Kumasi, Liberia, Gambia and Guinea and Sierra Leone (later Freetown) continued in the Province of West Africa.
