The Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Ghana (EPCG) has reaffirmed its position to reject the practice of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning Intersex, Asexual (LGBTQA++) in the country.
The church said its rejection of the practice was because it was an attack on human dignity and the true values of a man and a woman.

The communiqué was co-signed by the moderator of the EPCG General Assembly, Rt. Rev. Dr. Lt Col Bliss Divine Agbeko (Retd) and his EEPT counterpart, Rt. Rev. Dr. Mawusi Daniel Akortia.
