Women’s Fellowship

The UGCC Women’s Fellowship was originally formed in 1996 at our first worship place, Holy Trinity Bethel Presbyterian church, by Mrs. Baaba Ofosu-Donkoh. The first president was Ms. Janet Mensah. The group started on a good note but could not survive after two years due to some challenges beyond members’ control.

In July 2000, Mrs. Baaba Ofosu-Donkoh again formed an interim committee to revive the group. On August 20, 2000, the first executives were elected namely:

  • President-Florence Ofori-Gyasi
  • Vice President- Freda Appiah
  • Secretary- Louisa Gyandoh
  • Vice Secretary- Ernestina Ackah
  • Financial Secretary- Joana Darko
  • Treasurer- Margaret Owusu Sekyere (Deceased)
  • Women’s Organizer- Sarah Techie-Mensah (later became the second elected president)

Under the able leadership of the executives since 2000, the group became very stable and was considered a member of the National Association of Women’s Fellowship of North America and officially inaugurated in April 2005. The group has been very stable since its second formation in July 2000 and inauguration in 2005, with growth of 56 active members on record.
