Members of the Teshie-Nungua Area of The Church of Pentecost are gearing up for the 2023 Easter convention, which is starting today at three centres in the Area.
The Annual Easter convention, which is one of the major events on the calendar of the church, is held every year to commemorate the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
This year’s Easter convention which has the theme, “Jesus Christ Paid It All” (Isaiah 53:4-6 and Colossians 2:14), is taking place from Thursday, April 6, to Sunday, April 9, 2023. There will be morning and evening sessions.
The English Zone convention comprising the two Pentecost International Worship Centres (PIWCs) in the Area, namely PIWC Sakumono and PIWC Graceland as well as D. K. Arnan Worship Centre, James McKeown Worship Centre, Thomas Nyarko Worship Centre, Nungua District English Assembly and other English Assemblies in the Area, will take place at the Fred Safo Memorial Temple at Nungua Nshorna, Accra.
That of the Teshie Zone will take place at Camp 2 Park while the venue for the Nungua Zone is the GHACEM Park, Sakumono. Speakers include the Area Head, Apostle Wilberforce Nkrumah-Agyeman; the Resident Minister for D. K. Arnan Worship Centre and Finance and Administration Director of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Lawrence Otu-Nyarko; Apostle Rigwell Ato Addison (Rtd) – former General Secretary of the church, and the Area Secretary, Pastor Joseph Asumadu Berchie.
Various committees are working assiduously to ensure a successful convention in all three centres.
The Area Head, Apostle Wilberforce Nkrumah-Agyeman, has indicated that this year’s convention is of a different kind since a lot of prayers have been invested ahead of the convention.
He urged members of the church to come with an expectation to receive from the Lord. “This year’s convention is special, come with all your household, invite friends and neighbours to come and meet the Lord Jesus who has already paid it all,” Apostle Nkrumah-Agyeman said.
