The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, has announced the cancellation of church services, beginning from this Sunday.
The announcement of the cancellation and alternative arrangements was passed to Pastors of the Church by the Assistant General Overseer in charge of Admin and Personnel, Pastor J.F. Odesola, in a memo obtained on Thursday by The Eagle Online.
The memo was dated March 18, 2020.
The programme scheduled for this Sunday is with the theme: “Emerge.”
The memo explained that any Parish that has less than 50 members could go ahead with the service in the auditorium, but anyone with more than 50 should split into home fellowships for the purpose.
It said any parish that has the facility to run more than one service can do so.
It also said officials of the church can be sent to such centres outside the church for statistics purposes.
It then advised members to hook onto Dove Television for live broadcasts from Pastor Adeboye.
The internal memo obtained by The Eagle Online added: “Kindly be informed that this arrangement shall be in operation for the next few weeks, based on the position of the government.”
A Pastor, who sought anonymity, told The Eagle Online: “In Daddy’s (Pastor Adeboye) words: ‘We are to obey the laws of the land.”
