Churches Cancel Easter, To Split Sunday Services
Some churches have cancelled annual events that involve mass gatherings such as Easter week, while others have resolved to hold multiple Sunday Services after the government banned gatherings of over 100 people for the next two months.
In a statement directed to the church’s congregation on Wednesday, Pastor Goodwill Shana of Word of Life Church said only Sunday services and Thursday prayer meetings with 100 people or less will take place.
In the context of Zimbabwe, only Sunday services and Thursday prayer meetings with 100 people or less will take place. Congregations that are larger than 100 people will need to break up into sections of 100 or less, and use multiple services of the same venue or different venues to meet or ensure other forms of ministry are in place.
In this regard, the Faith Convention has been postponed to a future more suitable date. Please maintain contact with the church through the official departmental WhatsApp groups or church social media platforms and the Facebook page.
Harvest House International Church Senior Reverend Sarah Nyathi said there will be no hugging and no handshakes during the church services and the church will make use of sanitisers.
A congregant from Celebration Church, Ms Percy Dube said services will be streamed on the church’s social media platforms, with main services having been suspended.
