DARK CLOUDS OVER SDA

It changed as fast as the London weather as events surrounding the shameful episode which continues to dog the former Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) now Hillsborough Adventist Church  (HAC) continues to rule the spotlight for all the none biblical reasons.

 

The enfolding events as to who has legal rights to the keys to the doors of this 110 year old religious institution on Middle street Hillsborough remains a main  bone of contention although the matter is said to still be a battle in the law courts. Only In November a similar attempt to close the doors of the church failed.

Last Week Thursday a team of three persons from mainland Grenada including a bailiff from the court accompanied by a sergeant of police attached to the Carriacou Police station arrived shortly after midday and began placing locks and chains on the doors.

Locks were hammered into the main and two of the eastern side doors while heavy duty chains were tightly fashioned with locks on the front and back gates to the premises.

As the two men went about their duties while the bailiff stood observing the proceedings several members of the HAC congregation gathered to question the motive behind the decision.

Some were heard saying that the court order didn’t speak to the closing of the doors of the church from the members but rather it made reference to the debarring of three senior members namely Godwin Emmons, Jester Emmons (senator) and Jerry Emmons from entering the premises.

Later that evening a letter was delivered to informers inside Carriacou and Petite Martinique from the Hillsborough Adventist church Lawyer which noted that the locks must be removed by midday the following day and failure to do so would result in further action taken against the Seventh Day Adventist Body.

Informers inside Carriacou and Petite Martinique remained on the scene from 11:45 am to 1:50pm where the locks and chains were still firmly affixed to the doors and gates.

However later it was reported that the locks and chains were subsequently removed.

On Saturday the congregation came out in their numbers and sang to the top of their voices in what they claimed was victory.

However, the three who were ordered by the court to refrain from the compound of the church were not visible at the service.
