Govt should lift church ban, we’ll observe social distancing – GPCC

The Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) have appealed to government to quickly put in place some safety guidelines to pave way for churches to resume their activities.

According to the GPCC, churches have good structures to maintain effective social distancing unlike the markets and other corporate entities failing to adhere to the rules.

In a conversation with Class FM, the Executive member of the Council and President of Full Gospel Church International, Bishop SN Mensah said, “You see the ban was on social gathering but we have parliament meeting…

“In the markets, they say social distancing but markets sometimes are crowded so if we can have people meeting at the market and parliament is meeting… recently chiefs were installing their traditional leaders which was not the best, so I think preventing church and asking church members not to meet is not the best.”

“At this time we’re all helping to put in some mechanisms so we are expecting that in the shortest possible time, churches should be able to meet but with certain conditions in place.”

“For instance, the church should not be 50 per cent full, have sanitisers and they should put in place all the necessary protocols and some guidelines to govern the running of the church,” he said.
