KICC Ghana takes a spot at Appolonia City
The Kingsway International Christian Centre (KICC) Ghana, part of KICC Worldwide headquartered in the United Kingdom, will build a church at Appolonia City, Ghana’s new city in Greater Accra.
KICC is the first church to take a spot at the fast-growing, 2,325-acre community that includes homes, offices, schools and a light-industrial zone.
“Appolonia City is part of KICC’s long-term plan to take the word of God to both established and developing communities in the country,” said Pastor Andy Yawson, national superintendent of KICC Ghana. “Being in Appolonia City is therefore a great step in this direction, considering the potential size of that community.”
Appolonia City CEO Bright Owusu-Amofah noted that Appolonia City is delivering an inclusive city that serves the needs of all, and a place of worship is an important part of every community.
“The vision of Appolonia City is to provide every social amenity you can think of,” Owusu-Amofah said. “Both residents and visitors alike are able to access these amenities any time. We are so pleased to welcome KICC as our neighbour in Appolonia City, and we hope more religious organisations will follow soon.”
Additional amenities at Appolonia City include Eastern Ridge International School (ERIS), which is currently under construction, and parks and open spaces, which will make up more than 30% of Appolonia City.
About KICC Ghana (www.kiccghana.com)
KICC (Ghana) was started on May 5, 2002, with a Sunday worship service at the Kama Conference Centre in Accra. After approximately six months of steady growth, the church moved to Dominion Centre on Spintex Road in Accra. Since then, the Church has continued steadily in the fulfilment of its vision through its multicultural style of ministry, which has resulted in approximately 20 different nationalities being represented in the membership of the church.
