Ghana has come a long way when it comes to the country’s history with religion. However, for a nation widely dominated by Christians, it is obvious that churches are bound to be commonplace.
The above point means that most Christians worship at different denominations on the premise of various reasons.
Some choose churches because of the head pastor, others because of the church’s conduct of worship, while some may also have other varied reasons.
However, whichever church one may be attending, there are some events on the calendar that Christians in Ghana never miss.
With each church having a flagship programme on their annual calendar, they are able to get crowds from other churches to join in.
Here are five church programmes that Christians try as hard not to miss;
The International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), led by pastor Dr Mensa Otabil, has an annual programme dubbed the ‘Crossover’.
The event, which takes place on the 31st day of December each year, is geared towards ushering Christians into the New Year.
Each year multitudes gather at the Accra Sports stadium, irrespective of their churches, to mark the ‘Crossover’ service led by Pastor Otabil.
2. Greater Works conference
The ‘Greater Works’ conference is also an annual event organized by the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC).
The conference is usually held in July every year with renowned pastors from around the globe being invited to preach and counsel congregants.
The ‘Greater Works’ conference is also an initiative of Pastor Mensa Otabil and it attracts numerous Christians to the Black Stars Square each year to gather and worship.
3. Impact Summit
The ‘Impact Summit’ is the annual flagship programme of the Action Chapel International church.
The week-long summit sees a host of Christians converge to pray and seek God’s favour throughout the year.
The summit is led by Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams, who is complimented by a host of other ministers of God to oversee the annual event.
4. Love Revolution
Eastwood Anaba Ministries (EAM), led by head pastor Rev. Eastwood Anaba also have the ‘Love Revolution Campaign’ conference as their flagship annual event.
The programme brings together some of the big-name men of God in the country to preach on the importance of love in nation building and development.
The ‘Love Revolution’ is normally held at the Accra International Conference Centre and is patronized by Christians from all walks of life.
5. Iron sharpen iron conference
Founder of the Lighthouse Group of Churches, Dag Heward-Mills, is the man associated with the annual ‘Iron Sharpeneth Iron’ conference.
The event is held yearly in Accra, but was hosted in UK for the very first time in 2014.
The ‘Iron Sharpeneth Iron’ conference gathers Christians together to praise, worship and to be blessed by God.
