CoronavirusReligionJehovah’s Witnesses Reopens Kingdom Halls Two Years After Covid-19 Pandemic
Jehovah’s Witnesses in Nigeria and across the world have reopened their places of worship, known as Kingdom Halls, after observing two years of Covid-19 pandemic restrictions.
At the outset of the pandemic, starting in March 2020, most of the Witnesses’ Kingdom Halls were closed in favor of biweekly meetings conducted via Zoom.
The Christian body, however, resumed in-person worship on Friday, April, 1.
Olusegun Eroyemi, spokesman for Jehovah’s Witnesses in Nigeria in a video announcement noted that its public activities were suspended to prevent the spread of COVID-19 among members and their friends.
He said, “We didn’t want to be associated with spreading COVID. We didn’t want it to be said that someone contracted COVID because he attended a function organised by Jehovah’s Witnesses. That was why we had to wait until what we thought was a good time to go and this time, we think, is the right time.”
The move back to in-person meetings coincides with two important global events being held in all 120,000 congregations of Jehovah’s Witnesses in the month of April.
The two events are a 30-minute program titled ‘Where Can You Find Real Hope?’, which will hold on April 4, and the annual observance of the death of Jesus Christ on the evening of April 15, 2022.
