ICYMI: Crossover Service Amidst COVID-19

ICYMI: Crossover Service Amidst COVID-19

As Nigeria begins to witness the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, various churches in the country have announced how they will conduct the crossover service.

The service, which is also known as watchnight, is conducted annually by churches on December 31 to mark the end of the year and usher in a new one.

On the last day of the year, millions of Christians storm churches to worship their Maker during the service which usually starts in the night and ends some minutes, and in some cases, about an hour into the new year.

However, it will not be the usual business this year as a result of the alarming increase in the figures of COVID-19 reported in Nigeria.

In a bid to address the issue, authorities in various states have announced stricter restrictions to curb the spread of the disease after an initial relaxation of the protocols.

The measures include crowd control to enforce social distancing, use of facemasks, and asking children and elderly people – who are believed to be more vulnerable to the disease – to stay at home.

Some of the churches that announced how the crossover service will hold include the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Daystar Christian Centre, Covenant Christian Centre, Christ Embassy, and the House on The Rock.
