Gethsemane Society, Mamprobi serves as the Circuit’s Head. It was established on February 28, 1998, as a result of a decision made by the Methodist Church Ghana’s 36th Annual Conference, which was held at Cape Coast in August 1997. The Rev. I. K. Asuamah Thompson Memorial Society, Gethsemane Society, and two Preaching Stations at Zongo Junction and Chorkor Chemuenaa make up the Circuit at the moment.
The Mamprobi South Circuit, which is rated a “Grade A” Circuit in the Connexion, has received praise for its church planting and evangelism efforts, which have resulted in the founding of more than ten Methodist Society in the Accra, Winneba, and Northern Accra Dioceses of the Church.
These Societies include the Rev. J. W. deGraft-Johnson Memorial, Galilea, American Farm, Peace Town, and Mandela Societies in the Northern Accra Diocese, as well as the Asempa Society in the Winneba Diocese. The other areas include Official Town, Iron City, South West McCarthy Hill, and Kuwait Societies, which the Methodist Conference-approved re-demarcation procedure granted to the New Aplaku Circuit of the Accra Diocese.
The Circuit, which has a total of 1,688 Christian Community members, has produced 9 Methodist Ministers, including the Very Rev. Anthony O. Godwyll, who is currently The Methodist Church Ghana’s Director of Human Resource and Administration.
The Most Rev. Titus Kofi Awotwi Pratt, the Immediate Past Presiding Bishop of The Methodist Church Ghana, praised the Mamprobi South Circuit on the accomplishment while celebrating these and other victories the Circuit has amassed over its 25-year history. He urged followers to demonstrate the five spiritual gifts and the presence of the Holy Spirit in their lives as a mark of Christlike maturity.
In light of Ephesians 4:7–11, Most Rev. Awotwi Pratt said, “When the time comes for us to celebrate our 50th Anniversary, we should be able to boldly say that we see these marks of the Spirit in our Church. God gave some to be apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers, to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up.”
At a Gratitude Ceremony held by the Mamprobi South Circuit at the Gethsemane Methodist Chapel in Mamprobi on March 12, 2023 to conclude the Circuit’s 25th Anniversary festivities, Most Rev Awotwi Pratt represented the Presiding Bishop, the Most Rev Dr Paul Kwabena Boafo.
The Administrative Bishop, the Rt Rev. Michael Agyakwa Bossman, and the Methodist Bishops of the Accra and Cape Coast Dioceses, the Rt Revs. Emmanuel Borlabi Bortey and Richardson Aboagye Andam, respectively, attended the service. There were also some former Bishops of the Church present, as well as current and former Ministers working in the Circuit.
The majority of the congregation, who were wearing their 25th Anniversary clothing, were led in prayer by the Superintendent Pastor of the Mamprobi South Circuit, the Rt Rev Daniel De-Graft Brace.
To support the Circuit’s activities, money was raised.
