The Harris Church of Ghana has commemorated its 43rd anniversary at Adwumakaase-Kese in the Afigya-Kwabre District with an appeal to all Ghanaians to work together to make December general elections peaceful.

Reverend Yaw Asare, Bishop of the Church, said Ghana was their only country and could not afford to see it slip into turmoil by disputed elections.

He, therefore, appealed to political parties and their supporters to avoid provocative utterances and other unacceptable conduct that could trigger violence and undermine the peace and stability of the nation.

The anniversary was used to take stock of the church’s activities and to plan the way forward.

The Rev Asare decried the increasing moral decadence in the society in spite of the growing number of churches, and said the church must step up the fight to tackle this and bring about some level of sanity.

He said it was important to appreciate that there could not be much socio-economic development in an indiscipline society.

The Bishop announced plans to build a new chapel at Adwumakaase-Kese, and continue to support efforts at helping to meet the physical needs of the people.

Delegations from the church’s branch in La Cote d’Ivoire led by the Reverend Bogbo Jules joined the celebrations
