(Canada) — [LifeSiteNews.com] The threat of fines and possible imprisonment will not deter over 70 Christian churches in Canada from defying COVID lockdowns and holding religious services on Good Friday and Easter Sunday. The churches have vowed to open for Easter services "to stand together in unity and to oppose further lockdowns." (Image: Unsplash-Gregory Hayes)

All churches involved have signed on to Liberty Coalition Canada's (LCC) "We Will Gather Easter 2021" initiative. To date, eight Canadian provinces are represented: Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick.

In some provinces, such as British Columbia, indoor church services are banned outright due to COVID-related health rules, with the rest of the provinces enacting severe limits on church attendance size.

The first goal is that "many people who are needing refuge and sanctuary will flock to these churches and hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ."

Secondly, they hope that "our partners, such as End the Lockdowns Caucus and Professionals Against Lockdowns, will intentionally come to our services to take this important stand with us."

Lastly, "we would use this list to stand together in unity and to oppose further lockdowns"... Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
