PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH OF GHANA GERMANY DISTRICT

                                    History of the Germany District 


The Germany District of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana (PCG) comprises of congregations in Berlin, Bremen, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Hannover, Stuttgart, Kiel, Paris, Toulouse, Oslo, Mannheim/ Ludwigshafen and Mainz/Wiesbaden.


The maiden meeting of seeking to bring the congregations together to form a District took place on the 3rd of October 2001 in Ulm at the residence of Rev. Benjamin Larbi Asare. He was an Ecumenical co-worker stationed in Ulm and happened to be the only PCG minister in Germany. The invitation to the meeting was honoured by only Düsseldorf and Stuttgart congregations. The participants were Catechist Abraham Oppong Asamoah, Bro Boamah Mensah, Bro Stephen Opoku-Mensah, Bro Jones Adimang, Sis. Abenaa Koranteng, Bro Attah Kwasi and Rev. Larbi Asare. The idea of the Congregations coming together was raised by a few persons including Catechist Kwame Adjei, it was to enable the congrega-tions meet annualy as one body to worship in the form of Asempatrew. This was found to be a laudable idea and since then the congregations have been meeting every year over the Pentecost weekend except in the year 2004 owing to circumstances beyond our control...


The second meeting which was held on the 21st of November 2001 had representatives from all congre-gations which were then in existence. At the meeting Mrs. Esther Addo-Doku was appointed the Direct-tor of Fiance, Bro. Jones Adimang as a Coordinator and Bro. Stephen Opoku-Mensah as the Clerk.


It was at the second meeting (21st November 2001) that the District was officially declared opened by Rev. Herbert A. Opong, the then Secretary of Inter-Church and Social Relations of the PCG.
