Begoro Presbyterian Church Dedicates Conference Hall
The Morh Congregation of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana at Begoro in the Akyem Abuakwa Presbytery has dedicated a modern conference hall.
The edifice, has a unique iconic design, high technological specifications and excellent flexibility and also offers churches and para-Christian organizations an inspirational venue for meetings, conferences, retreats and other events.
The hall was dedicated by the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Rt. Rev Prof. Joseph Obiri Yeboah Mante on Sunday 16th August 2020. He was assisted by the Akyem Abuakwa Presbytery Chairperson, Rev Dr. Seth Kissi, Begoro District Minister of the Church, Rev Gabriel W.Nugba and the Akyem Abuakwa Presbytery Clerk Rev Ofori Bediako.
Capacity of conference hall
The ultra-modern conference hall, which has a 300-seating capacity, has a large car park and a cafeteria. The project was started by the local congregation but due to financial difficulties they stopped. Later, a member of the Church who lives in Accra, Mr. Kwabena Asante Asare and his wife Mrs. Pearl Asante Asare decided to support the completion of the project.
The Moderator commended Mr. and Mrs. Asante Asare for their commitment and dedication to Gods work and added that their labour will not be in vain.
Emulate Mr and Mrs Asante Asare
The Moderator urged other members of the church to learn from what the couple had done and support Gods work. He also commended the Minister in Charge and his session for working hard to lift the image Congregation.
The Minister in Charge, said the construction of the conference centre had a dual purpose – to provide facilities for guests and to serve as an income-generating venture.
He commended Mr and Mrs Asante for contributing to the completion of the project. He also mentioned that the couple also renovated the Presbyterian Boys Boarding School which was built in 1885 and also renovated the headmaster’s residence of the school. He put the total cost of all the project at GHC350, 000.00.
Mr Asante Asare in an interview said the project was a donation from the family to support God’s work. He pledged that he and his family would continue to support the Church and God’s work in general.
