Synagogue Church reopens Sunday, set to begin live service
RCCG donates N15m lab equipment to Lagos school
After 21 months of protracted closure and public suspense on reopening for Church Services at The Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN), life will begin to beam again as from Sunday, December 5, 2021, at its Ikotun-Egbe, Segun Irefin sprawling headquarters in Lagos.
The Guardian learnt the Church’s gate would be open for its global members, who have been yearning for the commencement of the usual live services programmes.
This was contained in a press statement from the church’s Leadership on Friday.
Late Prophet T B Joshua, the Founder and General Overseer of the Ministry had in March 2020, suspended the regular Sunday Services following the outbreak of Covid-19 pandemic, which almost paralysed the whole world.
Till his passing on to glory on June 5, this year, the church remained under locks and keys, saying he was yet to hear from God on church reopening.
“We will only reopen when we receive an instruction to do so from God,” he said.
It was learnt that there has been pressure from members globally for the church to resume services after the passing of the prophet.
However, the church’s new leadership under Prophetess Mrs. Evelyn TB Joshua maintained the position of her late husband that “the reopening of the church for normal Sunday services will only commence with the intimation of the holy spirit.”
Meanwhile, the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Rose of Sharon Parish, Ikeja, Lagos State, has renovated and equipped the science laboratory of the State Senior High School located at Muiz Banire Street, Ikeja, Lagos with N15 million worth of equipment.
Speaking at the commissioning of the laboratory, the state’s commissioner for education, Mrs. Folashade Adefisayo said the facility would enhance learning and teaching in the school.
The commissioner who was represented by an official of the Ministry, Mr. Ogunfuyi Taiwo Hassan, said the state government is determined to improve the teaching and learning of the sciences.
Also speaking, the pastor in charge of the RCCG, Rose of Sharon Parish, Ikeja, Pastor Emeka Obiagwu said the renovation and equipping of the laboratory was to mark the 25th anniversary of the parish as well as serve as part of the Christian Social Responsibly of the church aimed at positively impacting society.
Reacting to the gesture, the Principal of the school, Mrs. Adeola Judge, thanked the church for the initiative, adding that it would boost teaching and learning of science.
