This is why popular Nairobi churches and Jamia Mosque will remain closed despite permission to open

Two famous Nairobi churches, Parklands Baptist and the Christ is The Answer Ministries (CITAM) Karen have announced that they will not resume church services despite the government allowing worship places to return.

The two churches issued separate notices indicating why they will not resume. According to the two, government directives and conditions are not favorable to their church services.

According to the Parklands  Baptist Church, they hold family services. The ban on Sunday school means that families will not be able to attend church together.

“A significant portion of our congregants are families with young children; we are therefore concerned that the wholesome family fellowship will be affected if we reopen under the current guidelines.”

CITAM Karen announced that church leaders held a meeting where they saw it fit not to open the church for fellowship until further notice.

“We wish to inform you that after due consultations among the CITAM elders and the Pastoral team, we are of the collective view that we should not reopen our assemblies immediately. All Assemblies will remain closed until further notice,” read part of the statement from the church.

Jamia mosque will not be open.

Jamia mosque also issued a circular informing faithfuls that the worship center will not be open to the public. According to the Mosque, it will not be able to limit worshippers to only 100 owing to the location.

“Jamia Mosque Nairobi, will not be opening on the 14th of July 2020 as envisioned. The guidelines to limit prayers to only 100 persons are not practical for the Mosque given its centrality in the Central Business District (CBD),” read part of the circular.

During an address on July 6, the president restricted young children under the age of 13 from going to Sunday school and madrasa classes. People over 58 years should also not go to places of worship.
