After 21 months of unanticipated closure, the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN will be reopening for live service on Sunday.
The gate to the Ikotun-Egbe based headquarters of the church, will be open for its global members who have regularly yearned for the reopening of the church for live service programmes.
The said service will be streamed live on the YouTube Channel, most especially for diasporan and virtual worshippers.
The late Prophet and General Overseer of the Synagogue Church of all Nations, SCOAN, halted the church’s regular service following the outbreak of the COVID-19 Pandemic which terrified the world.
Till he passed on around 5th June, this year. The church was on lock and key, even when other churches have reopened.
The late Pastor Joshua had kept the church under locks 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.”
Reports has it that pressures have been regularly mounted by global worshippers of the church and for the church to be reopened after the departure of the General Overseer, Temitope Balogun Joshua.
The new leadership of the church under the spiritual leadership of Mrs. Evelyn Joshua, proceeded to maintaining the husband’s position that “the reopening of the church for normal Sunday services will only commence with the intimation of the holy spirit.”
Sources said what is happening ìn the church now 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,” sources said.
According to a prominent church member, Mr. Babs Olorunwa, he said the latest development attests to the fact that the church is back on track after a thorough reorganization.
“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.
