Cecilia Marfo's church has been closed .READ WHY!!!

The leadership of the Cecilia Marfo Worship Conference Center has announced that the church remains closed in spite of the lifting of the ban on all religious activities in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

On Sunday, May 31, 2020, President Nana Akufo-Addo eased the restrictions on religious gatherings under strict guidelines for churches and mosques that wish to open but to a limited number of 100 people and in a period of one hour.

However, in an interview with DJ Nyaami on SVTV Africa, husband of gospel musician Cecilia Marfo, Clement Kofi Yeboah disclosed that, the worship center will remain closed despite the ease on religious gathering.

“Actually, we will wait for a while. That’s what my wife and I have decided on. We have some internal issues to sort out first before opening the church. It’s better to wait and sort things out than flouting the law. This is not the best time to open the church". Mr. Yeboah said.

Mr. Yeboah added that, Christianity is a spiritual activity and must be treated as such. He said, the church is a just a place where saints gather to worship and not necessarily where God lives.

“We have to understand that, Christianity is spiritual. We’re the church and not the building and where two or three people are gathered in Christ name, He is there. So the process where we all gather and worship at the building is the church.” Mr. Yeboah said.
