A Pulpit in the St. Luke Anglican Church in England that survived a bomb blast in 1941 has finally found its way to the Holy Redeemer Anglican Church at Agona Kwanyako in the Central Region of Ghana, after 79 years.
The move was under the initiative of the children of a staunch member of the Holy Redeemer Anglican Church, Mrs. Beatrice Ama Kakraba Amoah [deceased] in her memory.
A Principal Nursing Officer at the Midwifery Training School at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, Mrs. Beatrice Ama Kakraba Amoah was said to have contributed in diverse ways to the growth of the Church.
The St. Luke Anglican Church was said to have been bombed in a raid by the Germans during the 2nd World War, shattering the entire Church, but the Pulpit stood the blast.
Led by their uncle, Mr. Kofi Forson in the presentation of the Pulpit to the Church at Kwanyako, the children described the moment as a desire come true.
Dedicating the Pulpit, the minister in charge of the Church, Rev. Canon John Mercedes Adu-Acheampong who co-incidentally is a member of the family that donated the pulpit, expressed happiness about the importation of the pulpit to Ghana, saying it has come to its home of destination, noting that the wood used in manufacturing it might have come from Agona Kwanyako.
