After nearly three years Jehovah’s Witnesses will be resuming their larger gatherings from January 7, 2023.

These assemblies had been held virtually since the advent of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Olusegun Eroyemi, National Spokesman for Jehovah’s Witnesses in Nigeria, in a recent statement, explained even though they resumed meeting in their Kingdom Halls from April 2022, their larger assembly facilities remained under lockdown.

Eroyemi said that arrangements had been made to ensure that the recommended safety protocols are implemented in all 23 Assembly Halls of Jehovah’s Witnesses across the West African country.

He said: “Jehovah’s Witnesses are extremely happy with the opportunity to once again meet at their larger facilities.

“The virtual assemblies were very helpful while they lasted, providing much-needed Bible instruction during the pandemic.

“However, nothing can replace in-person gatherings.”

He noted there would be 696 assemblies scheduled to hold across the country in 2023.

These assemblies will kick off on the weekend of January 7 and 8, 2023, with 64 assemblies at various locations.

According to Eroyemi, the forthcoming assemblies will highlight two Bible-based themes that will teach everyone “How Friends of Peace Conquer the Evil With the Good” and the question will be answered, “Is Your Home a Place of Rest and Peace?” (Luke 10:6; Ephesians 4:3).

Thus, the assembly themes are: “Friends of Peace and Jehovah’s United Family”, and no collection is ever taken at the spiritual gatherings, he stated.

All are invited to attend an assembly at a facility near them across Nigeria.
