A Quick Review
The Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Leominster, was established by the congregation of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Worcester which is headed by Rev. Mrs. Ernestina J. Gakpo. As members from Leominster were increasing in the Worcester congregation, a decision was made by the Session of Worcester to start a congregation of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana in Leominster to shorten travel time and also to make a place of worship accessible to those who do not have their own means of transportation. The Worcester congregation and the Men’s Fellowship agreed to pay the rent once a place of worship is found until Leominster is able to stand on its feet.
It took a year and no place was found. But by the grace of God, Elder George Kumi, Mr. Joseph Boateng and Mr. Yaw Asante Addow finally came across a place situated at 583 Main Street in Leominster. They then informed the Session in Worcester for inspection. After the inspection, the lease agreements and the conditions were handed over to Rev. Mrs. Ernestina Gakpo for review. Rev. Mrs. Ernestina Gakpo and the Session met with the board of trustees and signed the contract agreements for the place to be used for worship.
