Mr. Peter Adebiyi as he then was thus had the privilege of proving that he was indeed a trained teacher at St. Philip's Anglican School, Aramoko-Ekiti where he was also the Organist.
Fate played a role in this as the tiny but handsome (Awelewa) Adebiyi not only made an impression playing the organ at Aramoko-Ekiti, he also played into the heart of equally young, innocent and inexperienced Miss Caroline Adefiola Aiyedun, now Mrs. Caroline Adebiyi. Having convinced himself, that there was no indifference between six and half a dozen, he embarked on private studies which was awarded with five papers duly passed at the GCE O' level as a private candidate; it is remarkable that he was the only candidate to pass the examination in that year in the entire city of Aramoko in 1967.

The Vicar of ATOMAC, Rev. Abiade Adeniji, while acknowledging the efforts of past vicars in the search for land in a fully built-up area like Ogba, recalled that what had culminated in the completion and dedication of the elegant structure started with the charge to him by Bishop Adebiyi on his resumption of duty in the place on August 6, 2007 to work to get a permanent place of worship for the young church.
Tremendous support from the Diocesan, Adebiyi, and other people, the Vicar said, paved the way for the purchase of the plot of land on which the church now stands.
