The Calvary Charismatic Centre (CCC) has outlined its measures to ensure the observation of safety protocols against covid-19 ahead of the reopening of churches in the country.
According to the CCC general overseer Rev. Ransford Obeng, even though he wishes government extends the closure of churches by two more weeks before reopening, he sees it wise to adopt a strategy which the Church would apply should government lifts ban on social gatherings and release of other restrictions in the country.
Addressing a mini press conference at the church’s headquarters in Kumasi, Rev Obeng enumerated measures had and leadership of the church had laid down.
*Make wearing of face mask compulsory
*Suspension of children’s service and other activities
*Availability of health professionals in the Church during services
*Routine check of members temperature before, during and after church service
*Reduction of its over 1,000 seat church auditorium to 400 seats per service with 6feet distance between members.
*To run 6 different services every weekend (2 on Saturdays and 4 on Sundays)
Rev. Ransford Obeng also urged government to set up a monitoring team or taskforce which would move round to ensure that churches and other religious bodies do not go contrary to the safety protocols.
He however called on Ghanaians to fight the novel covid-19 spiritually through prayers alongside existing measures. Rev. Obeng believes the fight against covid-19 cannot be won should Ghanaians forget to be prayerful and have faith in God.
