He said he was excited at the different things that were happening in the various congregations and preaching points and equally excited to interact with the youth.
As a people of God, next, in 2022, the Ga Presbytery will be 100 years and praying for a great celebration. He urged members of the congregation to join in celebrating God’s goodness in our lives.
He explained that the centenary celebration should not only be a period of joy but an opportunity for members to share their faith with others. “I believe that the greatest testimony we can give at a time like this where we celebrate the centenary of the Ga Presbytery is sharing our faith with our neighbours, helping people to know that Jesus Christ is with us, He is lord and He loves all”
He therefore charged the congregation to use the period to share their faith with others and emulate the examples that the Lord expects of us. “Let us go out and let others who do not know Jesus Christ to come to the saving faith of Jesus”
Rev. Dr. Abraham Nana Opare Kwakye said the Ga Presbytery has embarked on a worship pavilion project is part of General Assembly’s decision to build over 300 hundred of such facilities to help congregants in less endowed areas who usually worship under trees and tents to have convenient places of worship.
He entreated all congregations, Districts, individuals, groups and families to support this worthy cause of the Presbytery in alleviating the plights of people with no decent place of worship in the Presbytery especially in the rural communities.

He commended the District Minister and members of the District Session Council for the very good work they have been doing in the congregations and preaching points
