Praises in church again

Social Share

WHILE MOST DENOMINATIONS did not open their doors on June 7, at least two churches welcomed their members back.

New Dimensions Ministries in Barbarees Hill, and Covenant Life Teaching Centre in Green Hill, both in St Michael, held in-person services. However, neither was taking any chances as there was strict enforcement of temperature checks, physical distancing, hand sanitising, mask wearing and information gathering on each member and visitor.

Government recently issued a list of restrictions as part of the Emergency Management (COVID-19) Churches Directive 2020, some of which rubbed church leaders the wrong way, especially as it came to communion.

After meetings and consultations some adjustments were made, but most churches opted to remain closed for now and only have online streaming services as they said they still needed time before they could reopen fully. (CA)
