E. P Church, Ghana holds 8th Synod of the Southern Presbytery

The 8th Synod of the Southern Presbytery of the E. P Church, Ghana has taken place at Anlo-Afiadenyigba E.P Church with a call on members to intensify their evangelism.

Annual Presbytery Synods are essentially periods of stocktaking and reviewing of past performances and planning for the years ahead.

The theme for this year conference was: “Breaking new grounds revisited, now is our turn.”

In his welcome address last Friday the Synod Moderator, Rev. E.W.K Denoo advised the Church members to eschew laziness and excuses, and not play with evangelism even when it has to take them away from their homes and work places for days.

According to him, members should pay their dues and be ready to give more towards the work of God.

He added that, the church must educate its members on what they should be doing physically and spiritually in order to keep the church on its toes.

He advised members to do away with rumour mongering, vilification, backbiting, hatred, tribalism, disrespect for each other’s views, maligning and misuse of power by those in authority.

Rev. Denoo used the occasion to call on the church to encourage its members especially and ministers to further their education and do refresher courses for all groups in the church.

He appealed to the church not to leave their children ministries in the hands of just anybody, saying if the church is “manned by a minister what about the children who are the future of the church.”

He also called on the President Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo to sustain the fight against the galamsey menace currently affecting the country at large.

The guest speaker, Dr. Nelson Kwame Damali, a lecturer at the University of Ghana medical school appealed to Christians to invest in their health and do regular medical check-ups.

He, however, bemoaned the situation where governments do not make adequate provision for units within hospitals were people can easily go for these check-ups. 

He pledged a seed money of GHS 1,000.00 to start a health screening fund for the Southern Presbytery.

He explained that, those who do not go by the commandments of God are sick,” adding they can be healthy if they follow the Bible and the way they live is different from unbelievers.

The occasion was used to unveil a 5-year strategic plan that will guide the church for the next five years.
