Hundreds of Christians last night defied the COVID-19 pandemic to mass up at the Korle-Gonno Lighthouse Chapel International branch of the United Denomination, to participate in an all-night vigil to usher in 2021.

Church members and other visitors who were mostly clad in white to signify triumph over 2020, sang and danced to glorify God for His love, mercies and protection and above all for a successful year.

The church’s auditorium was filled to capacity with several others seated outside with screens mounted at vantage points to allow for the observation of the COVID-19 social distancing protocol as well as to enable everyone to access the activities to ease congestion.

Security was tight before and during the service as people were thoroughly scrutinized before entry.In a televised sermon to the congregation, Founder of United Denomination,Bishop Dag Heward-Mills, asked Christians to exhibit the behaviour that depicted their faith and glorified God, in 2020 as they face the new year.

He explained that behaviours such as backbiting, fornication, lies and betrayal, among others are injurious to oneself, others and the church and hindered them from receiving the favour they required to prosper
