COVID-19: RCCG Amends Worship Schedule



The Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, has released a new guideline for Sunday worship in some states amidst coronavirus crisis

This followed the recent directives by the Lagos and Ogun state governments placing a ban on all religious meetings and gatherings of more than 50 worshippers, as part of the precautionary measures towards curtailing the further spread of the disease.

A memo titled: “Slight alteration in the mode of service for parishes in Lagos and Ogun states” was released by the Assistant General Overseer (Admin & Personnel) Pastor Johnson Folorunsho Odesola, who also addressed pastors-in-charge of regions and provinces in Lagos and Ogun State to note the outlined changes.

Sequel to the letter given to journalists on Wednesday night, Pastor Odesola added that: “We refer to the directive from the Lagos and Ogun state governments placing a ban on all religious meetings and gatherings of more than 50 worshippers in Lagos, as part of the precautionary steps towards managing the further spread of the Coronavirus disease.

“In line with this directive from the government, the mission authority has instructed as follows:

1. Parishes that have an average of attendance of 50 members or less can hold their services without any alteration or changes.
2. Parishes that have average attendance above 50 members are directed to make use of their House Fellowship centres to run simultaneous services with the main church.
3. 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.
4. One supervising minister and an usher could be seconded to each Centre for collation of necessary reports (attendance, New converts, New comers, etc)
5. All centers are requested to connect to Dove Television to join the live broadcast from the General Overseer during the period.

Pastor Odesola added that the arrangement will remain for the next few weeks, based on the position of the Government.
