Whilst we were going through the Covid 19 pandemic and various lockdowns which meant churches closing doors on a Sunday. A lot of church ministers found they could still do a service virtually with the help of You Tube, Facebook or even the churches website.
I have to say that for the Churches that did it and some of which are still doing it today it was a way of extending the gospel to those that couldn’t or didn’t attend a place of worship before hand.
However since Covid 19 guidelines were lifted and Church doors were opened again, in some cases people who used to be regular ‘Church goers’ have stayed at home and watched the service online.
If you attend a small Church that did this it can affect the congregational attendance.
Don’t get me wrong i’m all for online services if you are ill or for some reason you can’t attend Church. I am also up for using it as an outreach to those that don’t know Christ as their Saviour
