July 2021

In a ceremony filled with funfair, joyous singing and spontaneous excitement, Ghanaian Methodists from all over the world gathered, some in person, and others virtually through Facebook, at the cradle of their church, the premier Wesley Cathedral at Cape Coast to launch the 60th anniversary of their independence from the British Conference since 28 July, 1961. Launching the anniversary and calendar of planned events, the Presiding Bishop the Most Reverend Paul K. Boafo recalled the significant roles played by Ghanaian Methodists in developing Ghana. In particular, he stated that it was because of the inaugural visit of British missionary Thomas Birch Freeman, and the gift given by the king of England, a carriage to facilitate the Asantehene’s travel in Kumasi that a road had to be constructed between Cape Coast and Kumasi.

December 2020

I bring you greetings at this time of perhaps the most unusual Christmas we have ever experienced. The year 2020 is drawing slowly to an end and we stand at the threshold of 2021. The year 2020 has been described as one like no other. The world as we have known it has been literally turned upside down by the novel coronavirus Covid-19. Every area of our lives has been affected and those of us who remain alive have been stunned by the sheer scale of death, devastation, and destruction that an invisible virus has been able to inflict upon the entire world.
