Sekondi: 2nd session of 5th Diocesan Synod held by Anglican Diocese

The Anglican Diocese of Sekondi under the Chairmanship of His Lordship Rt. Reverend Alexander Kobina Asmah has organized its second session of the 5th Diocesan synod under the theme ‘Repositioning for Church Growth and Advancement in Pluralistic and Challenging Time of Ours’. Speaking on the theme, the Diocesan Bishop enkindled Christians especially Anglicans to reflect on th sequential, historical, theological and entrepreneurial insights that had been recounted over the years of the Anglican presence in Ghana. He urged all to hope in prayer and make adventure as they walk together and become apologists to Christian beliefs, bearing in mind the full gain of inheritance with Christ. “I ask members of the Synod to reach out and keep projecting for a better future with good aspirations, uniqueness and adroitness of the venture of repositioning to win the combat to foster growth through dynamism,” Bishop Alexander Kobina Asmah stated.
