Rev. Canon Andy Thompson, Senior Chaplain of the church, said in a Facebook post that the deision is in line to support the local government’s effort to check the spread of the coronavirus.

“St Andrew’s church is home to over 60 congregations numbering several thousand worshippers gathering in the same space every week. We have a duty of care for all of these groups and we take this responsibility seriously. Against the backdrop of schools, universities and conferences being closed down in the UAE, we have decided to voluntarily close down as we cannot meet the standards required to keep people safe,” he wrote.
