There’s concern in Trinidad and Tobago over ‘overnight’ churches that are not registered with the Ministry of Legal Affairs.
The Trinidad Express reports that a lot of the churches are owned and operated by Guyanese nationals, Venezuelans and even Nigerians.
According to the newspaper, they have labelled themselves pastors, apostles and ‘other religious connotations’.
Seventy-five per cent of the “overnight” churches are not registered with the Office of the Ministry of Legal Affairs, Trinidad Express stated.
Several churches are registered as non-profitable and there is no system in place for financial accounting, the publication said.
