Churches live streaming services for congregants avoiding coronavirus
For years now, churches have bolstered their digital footprints by accepting offerings online, posting sermons on social media and hosting group meetings via video chat. So in the wake of coronavirus, when cities are shutting down and quarantine is spreading, clergy leaders are ramping up services that are usually an extension of a typical Sunday.

"What was once only 20% of our ministry has become 100% of our ministry," said pastor Kaloma Smith of University AME Zion Church in Palo Alto, California. ...

(Not really a proper communion service, but unfortunately resembling the annual JW Memorial service, where the “Great Crowd” not being part of the privileged anointed “144,000”, pas the elements of bread and wine, but do not partake!!!)

So far, here in Britain church services have not been banned. I do understand though that as from next weekend here in Britain our PM Boris Johnson has announced that all gatherings, secular or otherwise of more than 500 people will be banned.

We do not have many mega churches in Britain, but one or two larger fellowships I know of will be affected by this.

One very large Reformed church I know of which does livestream its services, but still has congregational attendance, has put out a statement by its elders and deacons court, giving some guidelines, though due to the new rules, I guess it may to have to either split its services, or have online only.

The guidance states that all people should wash their hands on arrival or use the hand gel which is provided, avoid handshakes and hugs, (oral greetings only), sick or ill people should stay at home and watch on the live-streaming, disposable cutlery only used at meals, (some people stay after service for the children’s evangelistic Sunday schools, though I wonder if these will need to be cancelled), and somewhat bizarrely, the holy communion will be celebrated, as a kind of memorial service, but the elements of bread and wine will not be distributed!!

I have diabetes and have listened to my pastor and sermon audio when under the weather. But, nothing lifts my spirits than when I’m singing off key in the choir or when my Pastor, thunders the gospel message 👍

Like the move to online schooling, or homeschooling, some people might see an improvement and then, when the crisis is over, they will wonder...now why were we doing the other way?
It is interesting that USA Today is running this story, since few of its readers will be found in a church pew on Sunday morning.
Newspapers used to publish an entire 'religion' page with listings of churches and their services in the area (maybe they did have to pay $$ for the space), but that was a long time ago (well, check your newspaper this weekend to see what it has).
