The Men's Fellowship of the Accra Diocese of the Methodist Church has organized a “Bishop's Breakfast Meeting” at the Kaneshie Methodist Church in Accra.

The forum was on the theme, “Meet for the master's use.” It was a platform that would enable the Bishop to share his ideas, vision and interact with the Men's Fellowship regarding how best the church could move forward and stand the test of time.

The Bishop of the Accra Diocese of the Methodist Church, Right Reverend, Abraham Tagoe, urged Christians to be obedient, have faith and belief in God at all times, so that their prayers could be answered.

He said Christianity was not only about going to church, but was about having faith, belief and understanding of the teachings of God, since He is the only one who can solve al the problems of mankind, no matter the circumstances and, therefore, should not be discouraged when the going becomes touch.

Bishop Abraham Tagoe said Men's Fellowship was very crucial and ought to intensify its efforts to spread the gospel and ensure that the message of God got to the people at various levels, so that more souls could be won to change the negative attitude in society for the better.

For his part, Reverend Ismael Kotey, the Assistant Headmaster of the Wesley Grammar School, observed that the church was made up of different kinds of people, but anybody who was prepared to be cleansed, would be used by God for a noble work, adding that none amongst us was perfect, but the most important thing was having faith in God.

Reverend Mrs Regina Adu, who led the devotion to welcome  the members, said most efforts were needed to move Christianity forward, and cautioned them not to waste time on unnecessary things, because they yielded no good to mankind.

The chairman for the occasion, Squadron Leader J.B. Azariah, an Executive Member of the Accra diocese of the Men's Fellowship, urged members of the church to be punctual at all functions, since they served as the vessels that sent messages to the people, and that “punctuality increases productivity.”

The Men's Fellowship presented a Yamaha motorbike, estimated at GH¢1,700, to the Ga Mission of the Methodist Church.
