Presby elects new moderator

graceThe Presbyterian Church of Ghana (PCG) is holding its 16th General Assembly to elect a new moderator to take over from Right Rev. Prof. Emmanuel Martey, whose tenure ends on 30th November, 2016.

The event is taking place at the Ramseyer Training Centre, Abetifi-Kwahu in the Eastern Region.

Decisions that will guide the activities of the Church in the coming years will be made at the 16th General Assembly.

This year’s General Assembly, starting from Friday August 19-25 2016, is under the theme, “When the Holy Spirit Moves”.

The Assembly is the highest decision-making body of the Church.

About 250 commissioners and corresponding members from all the 20 Presbyteries, both home and abroad will attend this year’s event.

Rev Ezekiel George Larbi, Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Presbyterian Church, in a statement, said major highlights of the Assembly would include the official opening ceremony which President John Dramani Mahama will be the special guest of honour, Divine Service to commemorate the faithful departed and plenary sessions from Monday.

He said the presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, is also expected to visit the Assembly.

Other activities at the Assembly, he said, include presentation of awards to deserving individuals and corporate bodies that have made significant contributions to the growth of the PCG.

“Ministers retiring from the active service of the Church would also be presented to General Assembly,” Rev Larbi said.

He urged members of PCG and the entire Christian community to pray for the success of the General Assembly
