The general overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church Of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye has said that the church can start the usual religious gathering from next week Sunday at designated places where the law permits but that he, his wife and his grandchildren will not be attending such activities for now.
According to him, the decision for him and the listed family members not to be in church for now is in compliance with the government’s protocol as spelt out by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) over vocid-9 which does not permit aged individuals above 65-year -old and kids below 15 from attending the religious gathering.
He, however, said he will continue his virtual service and also give another pastor under the church free hand to operate whichever they prefer(Virtual Or Physical gathering).
“But as you all gather in those places where the law permits, please remember those of us who cannot gather with you yet. People like me and my wife cannot gather with you in Lagos because we are over 65 years of age and my grandchildren cannot gather with you yet because they are under 15 years of age.
So, remember us in prayers, so that very soon, we will be able to join you,” he said.
