Church reopens for worship


Share post:

Members of World Harvest Ministries International Church returned to worship in person yesterday.

It was the first time in over a month that they were allowed to return for Sunday service after the Speightstown, St Peter church was closed in April when about 19 people tested positive for COVID-19.

Their leader, Apostle Lynroy Scantlebury, was placed in quarantine and the church accused of flouting COVID-19 protocols, which was denied.

Yesterday morning, when a NATION team arrived at the Omni Corporate Centre where the church is located, it was not allowed to enter but was told by a male representative that the service was for members only. An attempt to interview Scantlebury afterwards was unsuccessful and a follow-up phone call went unanswered. (TG)
