A morning walk to rekindle the spirit of vineyard work, an orchestral performance by the Accra orchestra as of old during the advent season, a choral performance by members of the Accra United choir and a video documentary reminiscing the efforts and sacrifices of the forebears of the church in Accra over the past 50 years. 21st December 2019 marked the penultimate day of celebrations for the Accra East and West members, with guest performances by the Kasoa district.
A Vineyard Walk Through the ‘Apostle City’
Affectionately called ‘Apostle City’ by the departed Apostle I.N. Kankam, (because he lived in that suburb), members of the Accra East and West districts embarked on an evangelical walk through the streets of East Legon. Interestingly since that declaration, 2 more Apostles now also live within that same enclave.
The walk began and ended at the premises of the East Legon congregation church, with some aerobics and prayer session led by the various Accra East congregational rectors.
A Choral Evening
Later in the evening at the premises of the Central Church congregation, members were treated to a delightful sharing of talents and gifts by brothers and sisters of the Accra Area Orchestra, Accra West and Kasoa district choirs.
They performed exciting variations of hymns and anthems in English, Akan and Ewe languages. There was also a fine instrumental duet performance of J.S Bach’s Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring; by two young members to loud applause by the audience.
Re-Echoing the Past
In honour of the sacrifices and dedication of the forebears for the New Apostolic faith in the Accra Apostle Area, a documentary telling some of the happenings during the formative years of the church in Accra was shown.
The video documentary, produced by the Accra Working Area Youth, captured the memories, emotions and experiences of some pioneers of the faith who were witnesses of events in Accra from 1970 to the mid-1980s.
Gone, but not forgotten, we salute the torch bearers of the New Apostolic Church in Ghana!
