Following lockdown order in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the four church associations – Chang Baptist Lashong Thangyen (CBLT), Khiamniungan Baptist Churches Association (KBCA), United Sangtam Baptist Lithroti Ashiműkhong (USBLA) and Yimchungru Baptist Boru Amukhungto (YBBA) along with district administration and with apex bodies of the four tribes have resolved that churches (both in town and villages) under four associations would not meet with effect from March 25, 2020 until further notice. A statement issued by CBLT executive secretary, Rev. Achu Chang, on behalf of the executive secretaries of four associations, stated that the church door would remain open for anyone to go and pray. However, it was resolved that going in groups would be restricted. It advised that distance should be maintained inside the church while spending time in prayer. 

The four associations also resolved that church would ring the bell every Wednesday and Saturday evening besides Sunday devotional service and any other women and youth worship as per own specified timing.

The associations have asked every believer to begin their time of prayer and worship in their own respective homes as they hear the bell.  As per the directives of the association and the local church leadership, the believers would continue to worship in their own homes and pray without ceasing. 

The church associations have called upon the believers to all unite together in prayer and pray for health deportment, district administration, police, business establishment, leaders and every citizen of the world.
