It has not been easy considering the turbulent years, the highs and the lows, success and failures; but in all we would like to thank the almighty God for twenty five years of history.
The Balham Seventh-day Adventist church had proposed a cultural day. The Church pastor asked elder and Mrs Obeng, Mr Kwaku Baah, Mr Anaman, Mrs Koffie who were members of the Balham Church if they could perform something in their own culture. The Ghana fellowship had been in existence for a while as a prayer group. Elder Bayim introduced Elder Seth Obeng and the rest of the Ghanaians at Balham church to the Fellowship. Like the Israelites they were strangers in a strange land brought to the United Kingdom in the light of the hardships in our home land.
They were not captives but economic and social migrants who have left their homelands to better their lives through studies. What could the Ghanaians do at the request of the Balham Church pastor? They Decided to sing and this decision begged the question as to how will they understand our dialect? And how was the song going to be received? How were we to sing the Lord’s song in a strange land where the mother tongue is English? These questions were pondered over and over in the minds of the pioneers; but they decided to press on. The pioneers did not refuse to sing the Lord’s song like the Israelites but rather began to organising themselves to sing. It was not an easy task organising a group who had never sang in a choir or any singing group.
