Who We Are

Welcome to our Church

The Presbyterian Church of Ghana in New York has been in existence for about 37years - Glory be to God. As a growing Church, we seek the empowerment of the Holy Spirit to broaden the use of our God Given talents, time and resources to advance the mission outreach of the congregation and the works of the large church. "PCG-NY" is organized according to the constitution of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana. The General Assembly monitors the activities of the Church and the executives visit at least twice from it's headquarters in Ghana.

On October 24, 2004, the then Moderator of the General Assembly, the Very Rev. Dr. Sam Prempeh and the Clerk of the General Assembly, Rev. Dr. Gyang-Duah erected the Overseas Mission Field, USA comprising all the PCG congregations in the USA. That same day, the Rev. Yaw Asiedu was ordained and became full-time Pastor of the Church. This paved the way for the Church to grow both spiritually and numerically.
The Church has fought valiantly and through the empowerment of the Holy spirit:
  •  Established and nurtured other congregations and Preaching Posts throughout the New York metropolis.
  • The church has acquired it's own building with central air-conditioning and heating systems among other amenities.
  • Installation of new elevator for ease of accessing it's three floors. the Session has successfully renovated the first floor for use as administrative offices for the New York District and the North America/ Australia Presbytery.
We extend a hand of invitation to all Presbyterians, mostly of Ghanaian descent, and all others who truly seek a true relationship with God to make a date with us at any of our two worship services on Sundays. Check our Calendar of events and our doors are always open if you don't have a Church that you regularly worship with.
God bless you.
