Church No Matter What

Where Can I Worship Virtually During COVID-19?

For a complete list of Moravian Churches in North America that livestream, visit Moravian.org

Worshiping communities across the Moravian Church are exploring alternative ways to gather in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak, especially now that gatherings have been prohibited.

While unprecedented and frightening in many ways, this situation also presents a significant opportunity for the church at this moment to be present and to embody the life and vitality of the gospel in our communities.  Our neighbors will be needing us, which gives us the opportunity to “take the church Jesus loves closer to the people Jesus loves.”

Online Services (Livestreaming, Webcasting, Watching Services on Web)

Several Moravian congregations livestream their Sunday morning worship services online and intend to do so for the near future. These services are geared toward an online audience, using only essential pastoral and music staff. Visit their websites to learn more about how to watch these services. Note that all times are Eastern Standard.

Moravian Church Without Walls, an online worshipping community, is developing services that will be shared via Zoom on Sundays at 11:00 AM featuring clergy from the Northern and Southern Provinces.  You can join this service here.

Radio Services

Clemmons (WTOB 980) and Home (FM 101.5) also broadcast their worship over the radio. Visit their websites for details about how you can listen.

Worship is largely about connecting to God and to one another. When it comes to connecting with people in meaningful ways, there is no one right solution. Online gatherings have the potential to engage people in new ways, and to reach new audiences with God’s word. God is present and working in our gatherings, both physically and virtually. Amen.
