General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye has obeyed Lagos State restriction on crowd gathering to contain the spread of coronavirus.
He has subsequently modified its mode of services in parishes in Lagos and Ogun States.
Recall that on Wednesday, Lagos and Ogun States announced a total ban on the religious gathering of over 50 worshippers as part of measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus pandemic.
Pastor Johnson Odesola, the RCCG’s Assistant General Overseer on Wednesday disclosed slight alteration in the mode of Service for parishes in Lagos and Ogun States.
He said the mission authority of the church instructed as follows:
“Parishes that have an average attendance of 50 members or less can hold their services without any alteration or changes.
“Parishes that have an average attendance above 50 members are directed to make use of their House Fellowship Centres to run simultaneous services with the main Church.
“Parishes that have the facility to run more than one service can also do so, under the strict directive that worshippers won’t exceed 50 people per service.
“One supervising minister and an usher could be seconded to each centre for collation of necessary reports (attendance, new converts, newcomers, etc)
“All centres are requested to connect to Dove Television to join the live broadcast from the General Overseer during the period
“Kindly be informed that this arrangement shall be in operation for the next few weeks based on the position of the government.”
