The Presbyterian Church of East Africa (PCEA) has suspended Sunday services until further notice in a bid to curb the spread of coronavirus in the country.
All meetings including Sunday worship services and gathering will be on hold for the next 21 days.
However, the church will use digital and online platforms to reach it’s 4.5 Million members to continue spiritual nurturing and support.
Weddings should be postponed or be done in a ceremony of five people, including the bride, the groom, the best couple and the officiating minister.
Said PCEA Secretary-General Reverend Peter Kaniah in a statement.
Funeral services should be attended only by the extended family. Viewing of body should not be done at the mortuary to avoid people congregating. The entourage should go straight to the graveside or an open field with a short service of not more than one hour.
