Evangelical Presbyterian Church commissions Teshie modern auditorium.

The Evangelical Presbyterian Church of Ghana (EPCG) has commissioned the Teshie Church Auditorium after winning the case in a protracted litigation for the past 27 years.

In 1991, a constitutional crisis hit the EPCG leading to a breakaway faction illegally taking possession of some property of the Church, including the Teshie Chapel.

After 27 years of litigation, an Accra High Court, on January 25, 2021 ruled in favour of the EPCG, ordering the defendants, Global Evangelical Church, to return the building located on the Teshie Fertilizer Road to its rightful owners.

The dedication marked the opening of the chapel for service, the first time after 30 years.

The Right Reverend Dr B. D. K. Agbeko, the Moderator of the General Assembly of the EP Church Ghana, speaking on the theme: “Maintain the Unity of the Body,” advised the congregation to live in harmony with members of the Global Evangelical Church and “see them as fellow brethren in Christ.

“During the period of the litigation each congregation and their leadership in their rightful understanding was doing the work of God, let us not be resentful toward our fellow Christians, the period of litigation is over once the legitimate law court of the land has ruled,” he noted.

Rt Rev Agbeko advised the congregation that no matter the situation they found themselves as Christians, they should always be at peace with one another.
