EDMONTON – The Government of Alberta has shut down and fenced off a church that has been accused of refusing to follow COVID-19 health rules

Alberta Health Services in a statement say GraceLife Church will remain closed until it shows it will comply with health restrictions

Police and security personnel were on site as a metal fence was erected around the church building earlier in the day

The church, located just west of Edmonton, had ignored public health warnings for months, and its pastor spent a month in jail

GraceLife became a center of criticism against Prime Minister Jason Kenney’s government as the church remained open, despite Kenney’s warning of the consequences for offenders

Churches are allowed to be open at 15% of capacity, but officials say GraceLife has welcomed hundreds of worshipers to its services
