The leadership of The Keeper’s House Chapel International says church services in all its Branches will not resume on the 7th of June, despite the easing of restrictions on churches by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
In a statement signed by the head Pastor for the Church, Rev. Francis W. Aubyn, he explained that “the position is to allow leadership to consider the best ways to implement measures fit for our unique situation, in addition to those announced by H. E. The President to mitigate the risk of infection among congregants.”
However, the Keeper’s House Chapel added that “all members and affiliates are encouraged to continue to fellowship on The Keeper’s House E-church (online) platforms until a start date for physical meetings is communicated.”
They revealed that the decision will be reviewed again on Friday, 12th June 2020 with more information on the way forward.
Gatherings should not be more than 100 people
President Akufo-Addo has introduced a phased approach of easing restrictions especially in public gatherings and school attendance.
In his 10th address to the nation on measures being taken against the spread of COVID-19, he said effective 5th June, churches, and mosques can start meeting with a maximum congregation of 100 and the mandatory wearing of nose mask.
“In addition to mandatory wearing of masks, a register of names and contact details of all worshippers must be provided; maximum duration of one hour per service,” he said.
