Guidelines For Reopening Assemblies For Church Services

The President of the Republic of Ghana in his 10th broadcast on the Coronavirus (COVID-19) on Sunday May 31, 2020, announced the easing of restrictions on public gatherings as well on church meetings. Following from that the Ministry of Religious Affairs has also issued guidelines to aid churches organise restricted meetings with COVID-19 in view.

It is to be understood that these protocols are aimed at guarding church members against possible infection occasioned by large numbers of people meeting in one place for a considerable length of time. It is also to ensure that, in the unlikely event of infection, records would be available to facilitate contact-tracing to stamp out the spread of the infection.

Apostle Paul says in Romans 13:1-3(NIV): “Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves”

In the light of the above, the Executive Council of The Church of Pentecost directs that under the supervision of Area Heads, District Pastors and the respective presbyteries, the various assemblies use the next two weeks to take practical steps to meet the full requirements/protocols for the partial opening of assemblies for church services. Thus, the assemblies may be opened on or after June 19,2020, and that services in church buildings should start in assemblies only when adequate preparation has been made to satisfy the required protocols.
