On Sunday 10 May 2020, in line with government regulations, the members of Seychelles congregation celebrated their first divine service after lockdown regulations were lifted on the Island.
While some restrictions remain in place, churches are now able to gather and celebrate Holy Communion. District Evangelist Laurette, District Rector of the Indian Ocean Island district, reports that there was great rejoicing in the congregation. For now, churches have to observe social distance in seating, and communion wafers should be served and received with outstretched arms. While not all were able to travel to the divine service due to public transport travel restrictions, the joy of being in church and celebrating Holy Communion was experienced by all in attendance.
