About Us - Our History

The Church in Ghana today is growing, and active in evangelism. Many evangelicals are entering the pastoral ministry. The picture in the mid 1960s was very different. In the few mainly English-speaking churches the Gospel was not being consistently preached, due to the ministry of the Scripture Union (SU) many new converts were not being fed in their Churches. The three or four SU Sunday afternoon Fellowships in Accra provided some support.

It was clearly with these needs in mind that Korle-Bu Community Chapel was established. In March 1967 a congregation gathered to worship in the classrooms of the Nurses' Training College of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra. Notable among the congregation were Dr & Mrs Felix Konotey-Ahulu, Mr & Mrs Gottfried Osei Mensah, Mr Titus Van Dyck, Mr Isaac Ababio, Mr William Ofori-Atta, Mr George Anim-Addo, Mr Samuel Edwin Tandoh, Mr Joe Yawson and others. So began the place where biblical truths could be preached clearly to all who came to worship there. For the first 8 years it was more of a fellowship without fixed a membership.

Korle-Bu Community Chapel became a local Church in 1973. Right from its inception the church has been keen on supporting Missions. Every year in August we have a Missions Emphasis Month in which we raise money for Missions in addition 10% of our General Funds go to the Missions Fund. We believe the Lord has called us to remain in the Teaching Hospital to minister to the needs of the community. These are doctors, nurses and paramedical staff, medical students, student nurses and paramedical students. The Church is quite strategically placed to serve as a significant ministry to these students to the glory of the Lord.

In 1990 we acquired a plot of land on the Hospital compound designated for a place of worship. In November 1996 we moved into our present place of worship between the Ministry of Health Basic School and the Bishop Bowers JSS on the Quarters avenue, Korle-Bu.
Korle-Bu Community Chapel still upholds the vision of the founding members.

“In my first parish we had a glorious mission taken by that lovely Dutch Christian, Corrie ten Boom – a wonderful child of God who has personally taught me so much of value. At the end of the week, three of us who were leaders in that church went down to the station to say goodbye to her. Corrie got onto the train and we were left on the crowded platform. As the train began to pull out of the station, dear Corrie wanted to leave us with something to remember. She leaned out of the window and called to us in tones perfectly clear for all to hear ‘Don’t wrestle; just nestle!’ I think we proper Britishers all went a little pink. But I have never forgotten it. The emphasis in a Christian’s life is not to struggle but to rest in Jesus. There is indeed a fight, but it is a fight of faith, as we rest in the Lord ”
