The Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) will on Sunday re-open and begin live service, 21 months after its closure.
Beginning Sunday, December 5, 2021, the headquarters of the church at Ikotun-Egbe, Segun Irefin, Lagos, will be open for its global members who have all been yearning for the church to begin the usual live service programs.
The 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.
Till his passing on June 5 this year, the church had remained under lock even when other churches had commenced services since last year as the federal government lifted restrictions on religious gatherings.
But sources said the latest development followed divine intervention especially now that the mourning period of the late General Overseer would have been over.
“SCOAN has its own fair shares of the usual leadership and succession tussles in human affairs, an avoidable situation especially in The SCOAN but for the misguided few disciples all of whom have now retraced their wrong steps,” a source told TheNation.
A strong church member, Mr. Babs Olorunwa, on the reopening also said the church today has been thoroughly reorganized for better performance.
“The hand of God remains very strong upon this church with the few prayer gatherings I witnessed on the church mountain. I tell you categorically, God would never forsake His own. The Synagogue Church Of All Nations is alive. Glory be to God.
“The church resumption now is a response to the call of the Holy Spirit that the services begin as a manifestation of God’s anointing towards the glorification of His Mighty name at this blessed, festive season,” he said.
