The Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has officially opened the Wesley Towers Building in Accra, to further enhance the city’s growing skylines as well as solidify its status as a preferred destination for businesses and organisations.
The six-storey building, which is a fit-for-purpose facility, is owned by the Methodist Church Ghana. Its construction began in 2020.
Speaking at the brief but colourful ceremony to officially open and dedicate the building, Dr. Bawumia reckoned that the achievement of the Methodist Church Ghana marks a testament to the unwavering faith, dedication, and commitment of its membership.
“It is a day of reflection, of thanksgiving, and of looking forward to the bright future that awaits us within these walls. As we stand here today, we are reminded of the countless hours of hard work and sacrifice that have brought us to this moment.
“The journey to this beautiful edifice has been one marked by faith, hope, and love. It is a testament to what can be achieved when a community comes together with a shared purpose and a shared vision,” he stated.
He said the edifice should symbolise commitment to the values of faith, hope, and love while serving as a reminder that, “as a community, we are called to be a source of light and inspiration to all who encounter us.”
Also, he was hopeful that the multi-purpose facility will become a place of transformation, spiritual growth, and maturity for its patrons.
He said, “If Christians can live transformed lives in Jesus Christ, then it means that the Church and the state are heading towards a bright future. This is because their transformed lives will transform our societies and will affect the entire nation positively.”
According to the leadership of the Church, the Wesley Towers is designed to interpret the Mission of the Methodist Church Ghana.
With an image of three boxes separated by glass necks sitting on a podium, the boxes are designed to provide shading for the south-facing glass curtain wall and have been proportioned to a 2-3-3 rhythm, with a cross spanning the height and breadth of the building.
The frontage of the building is set up to symbolize Ghana, reflecting the international code of the country, +233.
Also, the lower box encloses three floors and has been designed to look left, the middle box also encloses three floors and has been designed to look in the opposite direction. The boxes, appearing to look in both left and right directions, speak of the all-embracing ministry of The Methodist Church Ghana, it was mentioned.
The Grade ‘A’ Office Block also comes with a befitting car park which can accommodate about 100 cars.
The Presiding Bishop of the Methodist Church Ghana, Most Rev. Dr. Paul K. Boafo, also addressing members and dignitaries at the ceremony, shared the history of the Church in the country while noting some of the challenges encountered in the pursuit of the project.
