Calgary faith leader applauds shutdown of GraceLife Church


At least one Calgary church leader is praising the decision by Alberta Health Services to shut down GraceLife Church west of Edmonton, after its pastor and congregants repeatedly defied public health orders for months. Fences were put up around the building on Wednesday after months of non-compliance with COVID-19 restrictions and charges pending against GraceLife pastor James Coates. In a media statement, AHS said it “physically closed” the building and has prevented access until the church “can demonstrate the ability to comply with Alberta’s chief medical officer of health’s restrictions.” Rev. Greg Glatz is the minister at Calgary’s Knox United Church and says GraceLife has flagrantly, and arrogantly, defied public health orders.
