Archbishop of the Church of Uganda Kazimba Mugalu has asked Christians not to neglect worshipping God through their tithes and offerings amidst the coronavirus pandemic in the country.
The clergyman called on other men of God to explain to Christians how to use online banking for the continuation of weekly tithes and offerings, Soft Power reports.
Legit.ng gathers that Mugalu said mobile banking could also be used in paying tithes and offerings or the people could stop by at the church during the week to do so.
The clergyman went on to say if those options are not available, the tithe and offering should be kept till when the pandemic is over.

In other news, riot police in Kenya have fired tear gas into a crowded market in the country so as to enforce social distancing directive the government gave over the coronavirus pandemic.
In a video posted on Twitter by Quick Take by Bloomberg, police could be seen firing tear gas on those that flouted the directive.
The people called on the government to provide them with money if they are to maintain social distancing.
A trader, Joash Okoth Abute, said: "Corona is a bad disease. But we don't want to stay out of the market. If the government wants to put us on a lockdown, they should give us money. In a week, we need at least 5,000 Kenyan shillings so that we keep staying indoors in self-isolation.
"Instead, our government keeps telling us to stay indoors. Yet, we don't have money to eat, and that will bring issues between us and our government. There are only a few people with money and many without money.
"So I am pleading with the government to ensure all Kenyans are secure. Help us."
Legit.ng previously reported that Christians were urged by American televangelist Kenneth Copeland not to stop paying tithes and sowing offerings even if they lose their jobs due to the coronavirus pandemic facing the world.
In a video circulating on social media, the televangelist said Jesus is people's source and not their jobs.
He said: “Fear of this coronavirus is faith in its ability to hurt you or kill you. The fear of what are we gonna do? I’m getting laid off at work!"
