PCEA, All Saints Cathedral suspend church services


PCEA and All Saints Cathedral Anglican churches suspended Sunday services until further notice, to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

The Presbyterian church (PCEA) has announced to its members suspension of Sunday services and gatherings, but allowed individuals to access places of worship for private prayers.

The church is however urging the government to consider suspension of all loan repayment and interests through financial institutions and provide necessary utilities such as water and electricity without charges.

PCEA is asking the government to lift taxation on essential commodities such as food and sanitary item.

All Saints Cathedral Anglican Church has also suspended all Sunday church services and cancelled meetings that were to be held at the premises from Wednesday.

According to Provost Canon Sammy Wainaina, the church will remain open for individual prayers. Couples that had scheduled weddings at the church in the next four weeks have been advised to cancel them.

Weddings conducted in exceptional circumstances, will only be attended by not more than 10 people and last 30 minutes at most.
