The Cathedral Church of the Most Holy Trinity, High Street-Accra has celebrated its 120th Anniversary with a Thanksgiving Service on Sunday 24th August, 2014.

The month-long celebrations under the theme “Transforming the Cathedral, Inspiring the City” saw a large representation of the clergy, laity and the media present to honour the occasion.

The Cathedral which is the centre of worship for Anglicans in Accra was constructed in August 1894 with a vote of five thousand pounds sterling (£5,000) from the Development Budget of the British Colonial Government upon the recommendation of the then Governor of the Gold Coast, William Brandforth Griffith.

Speaking at the service, the Anglican Bishop of Accra, Rt. Rev’d. Dr. Daniel S. M. Torto announced plans to construct a new magnificent Cathedral building estimated at $2.6 million which would have a capacity of over 2500 and would be located just behind the current Cathedral Church building.

He also appealed to the general public to come on board in helping build this edifice.
