Churches to remain closed until MCO fully lifted

Churches nationwide have been closed following a ban on religious gatherings under the MCO.

KUALA LUMPUR: Churches will remain closed until the movement control order (MCO) is fully lifted despite the government allowing houses of worship in green zones to reopen from June 10.

Council of Churches of Malaysia (CCM) said the decision as to whether churches would be reopened on June 10 would be reviewed when the time comes.

“We seek to prioritise the safety of our people as our paramount spiritual duty. The current situation is still very precarious and volatile,” CCM general secretary Hermen Shastri said.

He said for the time being, Sunday services would continue through online streaming.
