Pastor Mathew Ashimolowo of Kingsway International Christian Centre has directed his members on how to pay their tithes and offerings online from their home over the coronavirus pandemic currently ravaging the world.
The UK based Nigerian pastor stated this in a viral video on social media after the United Kingdom banned public gatherings of more than two people.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson placed the UK on lockdown to tackle the coronavirus, to be enforced by police.
However, Nigerian pastor, Ashimolowo amidst the lockdown called on his church members to pay tithes and offering.
“For those of you who don’t know how to pay offerings online, go to our platforms and start paying your offerings online,” he said.
