Asuboni Presbyterian Church of Ghana
Viewpark Parish Church is twinned with Immanuel Congregation, Kwahu Presbytery, Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Ghana, which is located at Asuboni Rails in the Kwahu West Municipality of the Eastern Region of Ghana, close to Nkawkaw, the Kwahu West Municipal capital. The minister is Rev Ben Yaw Owusu.
Our church began a twinning with Asuboni Presbyterian in March 2012, after working with the Church of Scotland World Mission Council. Asuboni Presbyterian have a congregation of around 200. We have been exchanging emails and our magazine is sent to Ghana each quarter. We are now looking to extend this communication with information from Viewpark’s organisations, which we will forward to Ghana too.
Through this twinning we hope to share ideas and experiences from our church life with the church in Ghana, also to learn from each other about our God and develop friendship and praise for God. The Asuboni Presbyterian church would like to develop and share their ideas and to create an opportunity for us to exchange programmes, which could lead to a friendship visit between the two churches in the future.
History of Communication
Emails are exchanged outlining activities which take part each week within Asuboni Presbyterian. These include: one week revivals, prayer conferences and thanksgiving programmes. The church also has the following organisations: Junior Youth, Young People’s Guild, Women Fellowship, Bible Study and Prayer Group, Choir and Children’s Service.
A small delegation of visitors from the Kwahu region visited the Hamilton Presbytery, arriving on 16 June 2018 until 25 June. One of the members, Charles Oppong, a trainee minister and BB officer, visited our church on Sunday 17 June and all three visitors – Charles, George and Theresa Acheampong attended an evening of Scot’s Praise and Scot’s Fayre on Friday 22 June. All three enjoyed their time in Viewpark Church and were made most welcome. We were able to send £500 to Asuboni Rails from a special collection held in June. This money will be used to help further God’s work in Ghana.
