Worship

Worship

Religion is an important aspect of life in Ghana. Whatever your belief system may be, you will be able to worship and find fellowship with those of similar beliefs. You may have to visit more than one temple, mosque, or church before you find the one that meets your needs and where you feel comfortable. Fortunately, there are many choices. In general, religious services in Ghana can be long, so be prepared to spend two to three hours once you arrive at a service.

Funerals and outdoorings (baby naming ceremonies) are an integral part of Ghanaian society and are very meaningful to the friends and family of the people being remembered or honoured. We hope that you will share in these as you make friends with your co-workers.

Following is a list of some of the major places of worship in Accra. The list is extensive but by no means complete. If we don't have a location for a specific place of worship, we have included a mailing address and telephone number; please write or call to get more information times for worship and about other locations for a particular denomination. As of press time, there are no synagogues in Accra. However there are informal gatherings in peoples' homes. You can always ask your friends and neighbours for more information if you can't find what you are looking for here.
