- A report by Deutsche Welle (DW) has shown that some Ghanaians are complaining over the noisy nature of some churches in Ghana
- According to the report, there are over 10,000 churches in Ghana as at 2014
A report by Deutsche Welle (DW) has shown that a cross-section of Ghanaians are expressing concern over the proliferation of churches in the country.
The report which explains Ghana to be a very spiritual nation records over 10,000 churches in Ghana. This refers not to the number of consecrated buildings, but to the number of faith-based groups claiming allegiance to Christianity.
"We don't have peace of mind. They make noise throughout the whole night," a resident in Accra revealed to DW. "The churches are too many, everywhere, some of them make a lot of noise, you can't even talk," said another.
Meanwhile the National chairman of the Pentecostal Church of Ghana, Opoku Pyinah admits there are difficulties but insists they are manageable.
"Sometimes in some places, chairs and tables are broken, some classrooms become dirty. On the other hand, there are some places where churches pay for the use of such classrooms and some of them repair the chairs and tables that are broken," he told DW.
