Formerly, all the Churches at the Atakunmosa East- from Iperindo to Faforiji were under the then Atakunmosa Archdeaconry with the seat of the Archdeaconry at St. Peter’s Anglican Church – Isona – Ilesa.
But on the 6th June, 1999, Iperindo Archdeaconry was carved out of the Atakunmoosa Archdeaconry with her seat at St. Mark’s Anglican Church Iperindo by the then Bishop of Ilesha Diocese who is now the Archbishop of Lagos Diocese- The most Revd. Dr. E.A Ademowo and the induction of the Venerable G.O Ige as the Vicar of St. Mark’s Anglican Church and the 1st Archdeacon of the new Archdeaconry was done on the same day.
From the beginning the Archdeaconry was made up of the following Churches:-
