Bell Appeal for Ghana Church

Friday April 15

Does your church have a bell which is no longer in use?

A Ghanaian couple, based in the Netherlands, are appealing for a new bell (among other items) for a new church being built in their home town.

David and Gifty Dziworshie moved to Rotterdam as a young couple, and have attended the Scots International Church in the city for over 40 years. Each year, they return to Ghana for a few months to visit family and to help their birth community, the town of Atiavi in the south east of the country.

The Rev Linda Broadley, who is the current locum minister at the Scots International Church, says: “David’s mother brought Christianity to Atiavi in 1921, and at the moment the community there are building a new church which hopefully will be completed in time for the centenary celebrations in August 2021.

“However the church is in need of some items, particularly a bell, as it is from the church that news is sent out to the other surrounding villages for gatherings and celebrations.

“They would also be very glad to have items for the sanctuary such as a communion table and Kirk Session chairs, a lectern and maybe some communion ware.”

Contact the Dziworshies through the Scots International Church’s website or email

“It is a good initiative to do an appeal in the magazine Life and Work for the Ghana Church. I hope for David and Gifty Dziworshie and their community in Atiavi that there will be somewhere a bell and other items for the new church in their home town.
Anyhow good luck for the new church in Atiavi.”
