Presby Church holds Assembly
The Presbyterian Church of Ghana (PCG) will hold its 13th General Assembly at the Ramseyer Training Centre, Abetifi Kwahu in the Eastern Region from today to Wednesday August 21, 2013.
It will be held on the theme: 'The Fruit of the Holy Spirit and the Believer (Galatians 5:22-23).'
The General Assembly, which is the highest decision-making body of the PCG, will attract about 600 commissioners and observers from the 17 presbyteries of the church, as well as representatives of overseas missions, and local and foreign ecumenical partners.
A press release from the Public Relations Directorate of the church indicated that the assembly would draw up a missionary agenda for the 2013/2014 ecclesiastical year.
Major highlights of the week-long assembly will include the induction of the new Clerk of the General Assembly, Rev Dr Samuel Ayete-Nyampong, who was elected at the 12th General Assembly.
The assembly, which comprises commissioners representing the 17 presbyteries, will review activities of the church in the previous year and plan for the ensuing year. It will also serve as a platform for fellowship, interactions and networking among the delegates.
The assembly, in addition, helps protect the church from errors in faith and practice, and ensures that the expression of the Presbyterian Theology remains true to biblical standards.
It also promotes a witness for truth and justice in the community, sets priorities for the church and establishes relationships with other churches or ecumenical bodies.
