Prof. Joseph Obiri Yeboah Mante is expected to deliver the sermon, on the theme for the year-long celebration: “Grateful for our Heritage, Forging ahead in Unity and Faith.”

Ga Presbytery @ 100

The Ga Presbytery is among the first five Presbyteries formed by the church in 1922 and is currently the most cosmopolitan Presbytery, which has earned her the name, “Rainbow Presbytery” to signify its ethnic diversity.

The Presbytery stretches from Tema in the East to the main road from Accra to Nsawam in the West. It also stretches northwards to the foot of the Akwapim hills.

Currently, it is made up of 24 Districts and one Mission Field.

The celebrations began last January when it was launched by Rt Rev Prof Mante.

Subsequently, a series of exciting programmes were held to bring the various districts within the presbytery together.

Some of the events were public lectures, a youth rally, a musical festival, fun games, a heritage trail to historic sites of the Presbyterian Church in Ghana as well as a health screening exercise.
