Over 400 members of the Ghana Anglican Clergy Association have gathered at the Ofoase- Kokoben Pope John Paul II Formative and Retreat Centre in Bekwai Municipality to discuss the role of the church in Ghanian society. In his presidential address to the “Anglican Priests in the 21st century, Challenges and Prospects” conference on 25 April 2014 the Primate of the Church of the Province of West Africa, the Most Rev. Daniel Yinkah Sarfo, Archbishop of Ghana, urged priests to identify more closely with their people, by joining in their sorrows and joys. He urged priests to lives of personal holiness, and urged them to respond to the challenges of Pentecostalism by making worship innovative and alive. The five day gathering will examine clergy welfare and pension programmes, the health and future of Ghana’s 10 dioceses, and church-state cooperation in secondary education.
