The Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) has said it will reopen for services after it was closed since last year March due to COVID-19 pandemic. Physical services were suspended in the church by the late General Overseer, Prophet T.B Joshua to prevent the further spread of the virus in the country. 

Although other churches reopened for physical services, SCOAN still remained locked due to the passing of their leader on June 5 this year. However, a press statement from the leadership of the church which was made available to Guardian reports that from today, December 5, the gates of the church will be opened for members who have longed missed the services of the church whose headquarters is based in Ikotun-Egbe.

Before his death, Joshua had said that the reason for the church's decision to remain locked was because “he was yet to hear from God on church reopening. We will only reopen when we receive an instruction to do so from God”.

There have been a leadership tussle between the widow of the prophet, Mrs. Evelyn Joshua and some of the disciples of the church. However, the court has declared Mrs Joshua as the new leader of the court after the facts were established using the laws of the church. While speaking on the reopening of the church then, Mrs. Joshua said “the reopening of the church for normal Sunday services will only commence with the intimation of the holy spirit”.

A devoted member of the church, Babs Olorunwa, said the the church has been thoroughly reorganized for better performance and that is why it is set to reopen today. Also, that God would never forsake them as his hands is upon them.

In his words, “The hand of God remains very strong upon this church with the few prayer gatherings I witnessed on the church mountain. I tell you categorically, God would never forsake His own. Synagogue Church Of All Nations is alive. Glory be to God.”
