Trinity, East Taifa.

As the Taifa community continued to grow, it became apparent the two existing congregations of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Taifa North could not accommodate and satisfy the spiritual needs of the many people who had the wish of joining the PCG and also the many a person who needed to hear the words of salvation. The vibrant Bible study and Prayer group of Taifa in 1998 together with the minister in charge in the same year, Rev Brandford Yeboah after series of deliberations and prayer had the direction to go towards the Eastern part of the Taifa community to plant a branch of the church.

In view of this background, A 2 day open air crusade was held on the 21st till 22nd April, 1998. Attendance to this crusade was very impressive throughout the two days. The first forenoon service climaxed the activities planned for the planting of the church on 23rd April, 1998. Mr. George Ankomah of Taifa delivered the sermon on the first day. Another open air crusade was organized from 9th to 10th October, 1988 to win more souls and to create an awareness of the existence of the church in the locality. The BSPG members from Taifa also engaged themselves in house to house Evangelism. The results of all these activities were tremendous.

ACQUISITION OF LAND

From 1998 to 2002, the congregation worshipped I the residences of Mr. Justice Asante Baah and Mad. Patricia Obeng Marfoa, now Mrs. Patricia Osei Nkrumah respectively. We are not grateful to them. When it became obvious that due to our growth, the church needed to find its own permanent place of worship, the care taker committee inspected the lands being offered for sale in the East community and managed to negotiate for one. With the help of Taifa Congregation, an amount of Forty million Cedis (40,000,000) now four thousand Ghana cedis was paid for the piece of land.

Several visits were paid to the land by the care taker committee, the first being on 5th May, 2002. It was planned that the 2002 Annual Harvest and Thanksgiving service held on the land so that so that the church will henceforth, worship there. Preparation of the place started in June 2002.
Members of that time rightly behaved like the early day’s Apostles; they all got on board and in a matter of five months, the place was ready for Annual Harvest and Thanksgiving service. The occasion came off as planned on 24th November, 2002 and the church has since been on its own land. The Trinity congregation now has built a decent but temporary temple for adult service and a place for JY meetings.

FIRST BAPTISM AND COMMUNION SERVICE

The communicants of the church in the earlier stages had to join Taifa and Taifa-North congregations for the Lord’s Supper. However, the first baptism was held on 1st January 1999. Rev. Brandford Yeboah delivered the sermon and administered baptism on that same date. Five adults and six children were baptized in the name of Trinity. The minister also administered the first communion on the same day.

FIRST CONFIRMATION

The church’s first confirmation service was held on 15th January, 2006. Ten members were confirmed from JY to join the adult service. Rev. E. N Ollenu the then District Minister of Accra New Town was the officiating minster.
