The Apostle General Sam Korankye-Ankrah announced to his congregation that the funding raising service for the National Cathedral would be held inside the 21,000 seater capacity auditorium (Oil Dome).
The raising of funds towards the building of the national cathedral is said to be hosted by Royalhouse Chapel International. The said date for this service comes Sunday, 5th September.
In attendance for this service will be 5,000 persons from churches and other para-church organisations.
Few works ago, the government led by His Excellency Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, sent a link across asking the general public to willingly send in a token for the building of the National Cathedral.
The National Chief Imam Dr Sheikh Osman Nuhu Sharubutu a week ago donated GHC 50,000.00 towards the building of the National Cathedral
The National Cathedral of Ghana is a planned interdenominational Christian cathedral scheduled to be built in Accra, the nation’s capital, as part of Ghana’s 60th-anniversary celebrations. The design for the cathedral was unveiled by the President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo, in March 2018.
The cathedral will have an auditorium capable of seating 5,000 as well as the requisite chapels, and a baptistery. The site will also house a music school, an art gallery, and a museum dedicated to the Bible.
The design of the cathedral reflects the art and culture of Ghanaian ethnic groups; the high pitched and the staggered roof is reminiscent of Akan inspired architecture and the facade will be concave and decorated with timber in imitation of Ashanti royal stools.
The architect for the project is the British-Ghanaian architect David Adjaye, who also designed the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.
