A new head office complex of the Methodist Church Ghana has been inaugurated with a call on the church to use the building as a symbol of its commitment to the values of faith, hope and love.
The picturesque and aesthetic infrastructure, situated in the ambassadorial enclave of the West Ridge of Accra, is the new addition to the host of high rise buildings in the Central Business District.
Christened, “Wesley Towers,” the design of the 16-storey single tower, comprise three boxes of two, three and four storeys each, separated by glassed –in one storey floor, all stacked on a three-storey podium.
It also has two basements below ground, a car park for about 100 vehicles, executive suites, offices, a restaurant and conference halls for public use on commercial basis.
The inauguration ceremony which had the Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, as the Guest of Honour was also graced by friends of the church from Nigeria, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Kenya and the Methodist Church, Britain.
Among the guests were representatives from the Christian fraternity in Ghana, including the Presiding Bishop of the Western West Africa Episcopal District of the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Zion Church who is also the Chairman of the Christian Council, Rt Rev. Dr Hilliard Dela K. Dogbe.
Also in attendance were the wife of a former Vice-President, Matilda Amissah-Arthur, and the Chief Justice, Justice Gertrude EsaabaTorkonoo.
Dr Bawumia said the edifice must serve as a reminder that as a community, “we are called to be a source of light and inspiration to all who encounter us.”
He said the construction of the building was a testament to what could be achieved when a community came together with a shared purpose and vision.
