On Friday the church issued a statement on its official website assuring their churchgoers that “Convid-19 will not come near our dwelling or our church family.”
“Your health and safety is a top priority for us and we have taken a proactive approach to keep our church family health and safe,” the statement read.
“We are in agreement that this Convid-19 will not come near our dwelling or our church family. We are praying daily for you, knowing that we are all protected by the Blood of Jesus.”
The church, which was founded by the 24-Grand Slam winner, said that daily praying and additional hand sanitizer will help to combat the virus which has affected more than 130 countries.
The statement ends with a Bible verse from Psalm 91:9-10 which reads: “Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling.”
On Friday, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison advised against “organised, non-essential gatherings” of 500 people starting Monday, in a bid to stop the spread of the contagious coronavirus infection.
