The Cape Coast Diocese of the Methodist Church, Ghana is to construct an ultra-modern Convention Centre to facilitate religious activities, at Bakatsir, in Cape Coast.
The centre, when completed would have a 3,000-seater capacity whale-conceptualised auditorium, auditoria, chapel, museum for church records and artifacts, library, press lounge, hotel, restaurant and a school.
The Presiding Bishop of the Methodist Church Ghana, Most Reverend Titus K. Awotwi Pratt, who performed the ground breaking ceremony, congratulated the diocese for the initiative, and urged the members of various societies of the diocese to remain focused and complete the project.
Rt. Rev. Ebenezer Abaka-Wilson, the Bishop of the Cape Coast Diocese, expressed gratitude to the presiding Bishop and the administration of the church for approving the project, and asked members of the church to support the project wholeheartedly.
Nana Kofi Otu Essoun, a member of the synod committee, which was overseeing the project, said the church needed to build the centre to prevent it from using rented school assembly halls or other grounds for conferences and retreats.
