Christians in Uganda have been eagerly waiting for Sunday after the president announced the opening of Churches. In his speech on Wednesday, the president finally gave worship places a go ahead to congregate. However, the number is limited to only 200 people as the virus is still around and risks can’t be taken. Many Christians were very excited in hearing this because online service never feel the same as physical Church.
Due to this, the Archbishop of the Anglican Church, Stephen Mugalu issued a letter to the church of Uganda. In the letter, he urged churches to have more than one service so that they follow SOPs. The president emphasized the need for especially social distance and wearing masks in church. He specifically said even the choir must wear their masks as they minister.
However, some leaders were happy about the specific number they gave, 200. Some church leaders suggested that the size of the church could determine the number of congregants. There are some churches whose capacity is in thousands, so, 200 almost leaves the church empty. On the other hand there are small churches that 200 people will mean it is a fully packed church.
Meanwhile, regardless of all this, most Christians are just simply happy about going to church tomorrow. As for the Moslem fraternity, they started congregating yesterday, putting in place all the SOPs as required.
