The Cape Coast Anglican Diocese has climaxed its 30 years Anniversary celebration with the cutting of the sod to commence work on a multi-million office complex befitting the status of the Church, as Philip Quaicoe Anglican Church was filled to capacity.
Performing the exercise here last week, Right Reverend Daniel Silvanus Adotei Allotey said the construction of the office complex marked another milestone of the church in the metropolis.
Bishop Allotey was assisted by the Omanhen of the Oguaa Traditional Area, Osabarima Kwesi Atta II, and Osagyefo Kwamina Enimil, Omanhen of Wassa Fiase, who was once an Anglican Bishop at Sekondi-Takoradi, the Western Regional capital, to undertake the historic sod cutting.
The office complex is being constructed near the Philip Quaicoe Anglican Church at Adisadel, in where all church activities are expected to be coordinated for the strategic development of the Diocese.
Speaking at the function, Bishop Allotey expressed gratitude to God for seeing the Diocese through the 30 years, disclosing that the number of congregants in the diocese had shot astronomically over the years, resulting in a brighter future for the church.
Bishop Allotey used the occasion to advise Ghanaians to speak the truth at all times, which he noted, was the best foundation for the development of the country.
He said it was high time Ghanaians shifted from the paradigm of peddling untruths, stealing from the public purse, and also hiding behind text messages to rain insults on decent people in the country.
As part of the 30 years anniversary celebration, the Anglican Church organised a youth forum to unearth the potentials of the youths in the church, an inter-schools quiz among the Anglican schools in the Diocese, while a lecture on the role of the church in national development was held.
