Pastor Sam Adeyemi of Daystar Christian Center has said that his church will not reopen for worship despite the ban on worship centers lifted by the Lagos State Government.
Kemifilani recalls that the state announced that worship centres can resume activities as from August 7.
However, in a statement issued by Daystar Christian Center titled ‘Update On Resumption Of Physical Services’, the church revealed that it won’t resume immediately until a safe environment is guaranteed.
“We are aware of the Lagos State Government’s announcement that churches can resume physical services from 9th August 2020. We thank God for the progress made so far by the federal and state governments, the NCDC and our frontline health workers. However, the leadership of Daystar Christian Centre has resolved NOT to open her worship centres for physical gathering on the immediate.
“Daystar Christian Centre will continue to hold her services online exclusively pending further review. We look forward to the resumption of physical services in a safe environment. We urge our members and friends to join us on all our online platforms for life-transforming services.
“God’s mercy that has preserved us thus far will cause this plague to pass over our families, nations and planet in Jesus’ name. Amen!”
This comes months after Pastor Sam Adeyemi said that many Christians may stop going to church due to COVID-19.
