The Anglican Sunday School Association (ASSA) under the Diocese of Accra has held its Twentieth (20th) Diocesan Annual Study Camp at the Accra Academy Secondary School.
The one-week camp which started on Sunday 11th August, 2014 on the theme “Jesus My Firm Foundation”, has brought together over 900 Sunday School Children and Teachers from the various Parishes and Congregations within the Diocese.
The Camp was aimed at grooming the Christian child in the ways of Christ; good personal hygiene, drama, dance, bead designing and sports.
In his keynote address, the former Director of the Youth and Children’s Ministry, Rev’d. Fr. Elijah Quarshie urged Christians to live lives worthy of accountability to Jesus Christ.
The Youth and Children Ministry is a ministerial arm of the Diocese of Accra, which is responsible for organizing, coordinating and advancing the formation in Christ of all Anglicans up to age 35. Formation in Christ includes Christian education, social and peer development, life skills acquisition, and full participation in the Holy Church. Specific objectives in programs of the Ministry for Youth and Children will promote and support safe growth and development for youth and children of the diocese.
It was a joyous occasion on Saturday 28th June, 2014 when the Anglican Diocese of Accra launched its customized New International Version (NIV) of the Holy Bible at the Cathedral Church of the Most Holy Trinity, High Street-Accra.
