COVID-19: Crowd gathers outside GraceLife Church west of Edmonton Sunday to protest closure


A section of temporary fencing put up around GraceLife Church west of Edmonton last week was pulled down by a group gathered outside the property Sunday morning. Global News video captured a group of people pulling down a section of the fence as RCMP officers stood on the other side, but other protesters attempted to put it back up and reprimanded them. The fence was put up around GraceLife Wednesday, April 7 at the direction of Alberta Health Services after the church failed to comply with the province’s COVID-19 restrictions throughout the pandemic. Hundreds of people gathered outside GraceLife on Sunday to protest the church’s closure. By 11 a.m., around 300 people were outside the church, some singing hymns at times as numerous RCMP officers stood at the roadway leading to the fenced-in church.
