It was all joy when the news of live telecast of the Pentecost divine service to be conducted by our Chief Apostle was announced to the Sunyani Central congregation. All the satellite congregations within the Sunyani Metropolis were invited to this festive occasion. All the technical equipments for the transmission were tested on Saturday evening and everything was in order.
Because of the two hour time difference with Germany members were seated by 7.50 am. It was all joy when the signal for the commencement of the divine service was given and the Chief Apostle could commence the divine service at exactly 8.00 am local time. It was a touching atmosphere and the passage on Acts 2;1 “And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.” was really dawned on the members.
The Chief Apostle began the opening prayer, the text word was read, the choir sung, the Bible passage was read, and when the Chief Apostle began the sermon, within ten minutes we were cut off from the server because of weak network. Much as we tried we could not connect to the server. It was an uneasy moment for Apostle Oppong-Brenya to continue and bring the divine service to an end. The feast of Pentecost was well patronized. Four hundred and sixteen members and guests attended the divine service.
After the divine service Apostle Oppong-Brenya unveiled a sign post for the Sunyani Central Congregation. The congregation is sited off a major street in the Sunyani Metropolis and the Rector thought it wise to make the church accessible to invited guests. The cost of the construction was from the voluntary contributions of the members.
