United Church in Jamaica and the Cayman Islands (UCJCI) provides multi-media resources as part of being the Church in the COVID-19 world

by Peter Teo

After Jamaica confirmed its first COVID-19 case on 10 March, the United Church in Jamaica and the Cayman Islands (UCJCI) encouraged their congregants to seek new opportunities to be the church in a needy world, and to find new avenues for worship. These included recreating the family altar in one’s household, and utilising social media and messaging tools. Also, government updates, fact-sheets, printable posters on infection prevention for physical premises and social media, videos on airport measures, and more were provided.

In addition, UCJCI General Secretary requested its leaders and members to pray individually or as families on every Wednesday at noon, providing points for prayer including those who are affected by the disease, their healthcare workers who are on the frontlines, their elderly persons, and the needy and those who have lost, or will lose, their jobs.
