Following the directives of the Lagos state government for Worship Centres to be reopened across the state. The Daystar Christian Centre has informed its members that physical service remains suspended until further review.

A statement released on the Church’s website reads:

“Dear Daystar Member,

“We are aware of the Lagos State Government’s announcement that churches can resume physical services from 9th August 2020. We thank God for the progress made so far by the federal and state governments, the NCDC and our frontline health workers. However, the leadership of Daystar Christian Centre has resolved NOT to open her worship centres for physical gathering on the immediate.

“Daystar Christian Centre will continue to hold her services online exclusively pending further review. We look forward to the resumption of physical services in a safe environment. We urge our members and friends to join us on all our online platforms for life transforming services.

“God’s mercy that has preserved us thus far will cause this plague to pass over our families, nations and planet in Jesus’ name. Amen!”

The issue of worship centres regulations by the Nigerian government has generated few criticisms from some Pastors in the country, such as Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, Founder and President of Believers Love World who recently condemned the Nigerian Government for attempting to reduce the time of Sunday services.
