Going to Church (SCOAN)
Due to the large usually large crowds at the SCOAN, you are expected to be in church in good time for the Sunday service. If you are not in church already as early as 3.30am, you may not have access to the main church auditorium, meaning you would have to settle for the overflow crowd. Some people begin to queue up from 3am, so make sure you arrive church in good time.
There is a thorough search at both the church entrance and overflow crowd; some items are prohibited from entry into the church. Additionally, you must pick the current SCOAN service bulletin (booklet) from the church vendors, otherwise you will be bounced from the gate – it costs just N200 (less than $1). It is not compulsory for the overflow crowd though.
