The Prisons Interdenominational Church (PIC) of Prisons Headquarters has held a Watch Night Service to usher in the New Year.
The Service, which was held at the Church’s premises, was attended by a large crowd of worshippers from all walks of life
including the Director-General of the Ghana Prisons Service, Madam Matilda Baffour-Awuah.
Members of the congregation were treated to melodious praise and worship songs from various singing groups within the Church and the Regimental Band of the Ghana Prisons Service amidst words of exhortation from leaders of the Church. The atmosphere was a joyous one as the overflowing congregation was seen singing praises to God and dancing their hearts out in appreciation to God for his mercy and kindness.
Preaching the sermon, the resident chaplain of PIC, Cantonments, Rev. Fr. Superintendent Sylvanus Adama Okai, urged Christians to show gratitude and appreciation to God for his love, mercy and faithfulness. He encouraged the congregation to continue to be faithful to God and the nation and serve diligently in which ever capacity they found themselves so that they can continue to enjoy the bountiful blessings, presence and glory of God in 2015.
With a few minutes to midnight, Rev. Fr. Adama Okai led the congregation in fervent prayers to usher in the new year. The congregants jubilated, became ecstatic and fired fire crackers into the air to welcome the new year.
