The building where the church operates from in Pollen area is a bar known as ‘Hide out’ and no documents were obtained to change the use of the premises.
Sources from the council have revealed that when an application was made to change the use of the premises, the church officials were told to bring a certificate of registration which they failed to avail the council. The council is now making arrangements to shut the premises as it is also feared the church may not be registered with the registrar of societies.
