GaDangme Fellowship is a Christian community ministry set up to teach and preach the gospel of Jesus Christ in GaDangme and other Ghanaian languages. In so doing, members are to discover what human life is meant to be, that is, to follow the same attitude as Jesus Christ (Philippians. 2:5) and to learn to love God and to love one another (Matthew 22: 37-39). Therefore the love of God and the love of neighbour are the cornerstones that underpin its activities. Members are therefore  expected  to live with God’s desire and well–being. Faith, hope and love would be part and parcel of everyday life. The Fellowship was established by members of the GaDangme Community in London under the leadership of Revd. Dr Godwin  Odonkor in October 2004. All GaDangmebii and friends of our GaDangme-speaking brothers and sisters are invited to join the friendly URC Ghanaian Fellowship who worship at St. Andrew’s United Reformed Church, Mount Park Road, Ealing Broadway, London W5 2RP,  on the 4th Sunday of each month,  from 3:00 – 6.00pm.
Services are conducted in the GaDangme languages as well as in English.

“Ejaake nɔ ni ka Ezra tsui nɔ ji akɛ eekase Yehowa mla lɛ ni eye nɔ, ni etsɔɔ mɛi akpɔi lɛ kɛ mlai lɛ yɛ Israel maŋ lɛ mli”      (Ezra 7:10)

“For Ezra had set his heart to study the Law of the Lord and to do it, and to teach his statuses and rules in Israel”     (Ezra 7:10)

 

London GaDangme Fellowship URCSharing the love of Christ, the Light of the world.

“Wɔmii shiɛ Kristo, je lɛ mli la lɛ, suɔmɔ lɛ.”

At Ealing, GaDangme people in London raised their “Ebenezer Stone” in 2004.
We are told in the Bible that Samuel, a priest and leader of Israel placed a large stone between Nizpah and Shen and named it Ebenezer, which mean “Up to this point the Lord has helped us” (1 Samuel 7:12) . This was after a long period of Israel disobedience of the Lord.
However, Israel repented under Samuel’s leadership and re-committed their hearts and minds to the Lord. And so ,when they were attacked by the Philistines , the Lord caused a loud thunder against the Philistines which threw them into panic. The people of Israel got their lives back and the stone stood there as a visible reminder of judgement , repentance , mercy and restoration. It also became a stone of renewal and fresh beginning.
Therefore when GaDangme people in London came to Ealing in October 2004, to start a Fellowship group, we raised our Ebenezer stone, to thank God for all that He has done for us in the past and to remind ourselves of the help God has given us and to recognise that our God is a living and faithful God, whose mercies are everlasting. It also reminds us to love God and to love one another with all our hearts, our minds and our strength and also to be compassionate to one another as a family.
Therefore, we recognised that whatever we do, it is by the help of God and while we are alive it is by His Grace.
We therefore sing together: Ebenezer- “ Biɛ Nyɔŋmɔ ye buawɔ kɛbashi”

1. Lɛɛlɛŋ Nyɔŋmɔ dromɔ kɛkɛ ni
Wɔhiɛ kamɔ ŋmɛnɛ nɛɛ
Kɛ jen shihilɛ mli wa taakɛ mɛ
Ejieɔ wo yɛ fɛɛ tswen mli
Kɛ wɔfee ekpakpa ko
Eyeli kɛ buamɔ naa
Hewɔ wɔlaa “Ebenezer” ‘tsɔɔ akɛ
Biɛ Nyɔŋmɔ yebua wɔ kɛbashi

Ebenezer! Biɛ Nyɔŋmɔ ye buawɔ kɛbashi
Ebenezer! Edromɔ kɛkɛ ni

2. Miishɛɛ kɛ amane
Esuɔmɔ yeɔɔ buawɔ
Suɔmɔ kɛ sɔlemɔ sa akɛ
Wɔkɛ fa gbɛ nɛɛ
Hewɔ nyɛ haa wɔkɛ miishɛɛ
Asumɔa Nyɔŋmɔ
Koni kɛ wɔgboi lɛ
Kristo abu wɔ mantsɛ fai

Ebenezer! Biɛ Nyɔŋmɔ ye buawɔ kɛbashi
Ebenezer! Edromɔ kɛkɛ ni
 


 
While we sing Ebenezer, standing together, shoulder to shoulder, we should always remember that we have a living and faithful God . And we shall praise Him all the time because he is good and his love endures forever.
We should also ask God for forgiveness for the past and look forward with hope to what lies ahead, “Forgetting what is behind and straining towards what is ahead , and press on towards the goal to win the prize which God is calling us heavenwards in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:13-14)
