Ghana is a thoroughly religious country. There are churches everywhere and on Sunday they're packed. On Sunday morning everyone visits the church, and a service of less than an hour or two is just not taken seriously. In addition to Catholic churches, there are also many protestant communities and even more churches of 'self-made' priests, similar to American television priests. The influence of Islam is evident in the north. Ghanaians are very tolerant when it comes to religion and accept any differences effortlessly. Protestant services are delivered in an African style with much rhythmic song and dance. Whether or not you're religious, a visit to Ghana isn't complete without a visit to the church.
