   2023 CCG Sunday Celebration: Message from General Secretary



DATE: JULY 30, 2023

Beloved in Christ,

Now unto him that is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen (Ephesians 3:20-21).

I bring you fraternal greetings in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

The Christian Council of Ghana will be ninety-four (94) years on October 30, 2023. Among others, the Council has contributed to the promotion of political stability, women’s empowerment, interfaith harmony, and cultural transformation in Ghana.

Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill

The Parliament of Ghana has begun proceedings on the Bill for the Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values. As a Council we have been one of the key advocates for the promotion of human dignity, which the bill seeks to affirm in our country.

The Christian Council of Ghana is part of the coalition that tabled the bill in Parliament and we urge all member churches to pray for Grace and Boldness for our Parliamentarians to pass the bill without fear. The Council believes that if our dear nation entertains the gay movement and gives them the opportunities they seek, our family bonds and social fabric will be completely destroyed.

We need to stand up against any movement that perpetrates unbiblical, unethical and abominable deeds. We seek your prayer support for the President and Parliamentarians in these times.

2024 General Elections

The journey from now to the end of 2024 is filled with political activities, as the nation gets ready for another General Elections in December 2024. In as much as it seems far off, we need to prepare our hearts and minds for the elections. The Council urges Ministers of our Member Churches to sensitize members about next year’s General Elections and all other intra party activities.

Let us pray for peace and harmony in our country, before, during and after the elections. Additionally, we encourage all churches and Christians to get involved in the electioneering processes by preaching peace and harmony in our communities.

Peace and Security Concerns

The leadership of CCG calls on all Member Churches to pray for the peace of our nation, Africa and the rest of the world. We call on you to especially remember the nation of Sudan and Ukraine as you pray for peace.

In the past few weeks, there have been reports of attacks on security personnel, robberies in companies, and on highways in our country. The leadership of CCG urges all, especially pastors to be security conscious. We must take practical measures to ensure the safety of our families and congregants. We urge Pastors to invite security experts to their churches to educate the members on their personal safety. Additionally, we encourage the citizenry to be vigilant and take safety precautions at all times.


The Christian Council of Ghana is thankful to God Almighty for His mercies upon our lives. Our gratitude goes to all CCG Heads of Churches together with the Pastors and leaders who serve in God’s vineyard.

May the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus (cf. Phi. 4:7).

God bless you.


The Christian Council of Ghana and the Ghana Catholic Bishops’ Conference wish to assure all Ghanaians that we will continue our public education, Christian advocacy and prayers for peace, harmony, and justice in Ghana. In so doing we will continue to be non-partisan and be guided by the principles of the Holy Bible. We wish all Ghanaians well in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Human Rights and Gender
