Sakumono, Ghana – The Christ the King Anglican Church (CKAC), Sakumono, is set to host the ninth edition of the Viva Cristo Rey Gospel Concert this weekend on Saturday, November 18, 2023. The event, a part of the Parish’s evangelism initiative, aligns with the 2023 Anglican Diocese of Accra’s theme of ‘Affirmative Discipleship’.
According to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) , this year’s concert, named ‘Viva Cristo Rey 9.0 – A Nite with the King’, will take place at the Holy Child School Park in Sakumono at 1700 hours. The concert will feature renowned gospel artist Minister Kweku Teye, alongside other notable gospel musicians and groups such as Kings Praise (Host Band), CKAC Choir, Courageous Voices, and Royal Vine Gospel Jama Group.
The previous edition of the concert showcased various gospel groups, including the Blessed Harp Choir, Sanctified Voices, and Chosen Vessels.
