Check How Your Church Is Streaming Online

Wondering how to attend church online? If you’re already a member of a church, ask them when and how you can watch from home.

Many churches are using platforms such as Facebook Live and Zoom to broadcast their services to parishioners at home. Your church can give you instructions about how to connect, but the good news is that it’s easy—as long as you have an internet connection, you can sign in.

For your first time, try to log on a bit early to check that your sound and audio are working correctly.

What if you don’t already have a church? That’s ok—you can take a look at a few churches online until you find one that matches your beliefs and ideas.

Watch With Your Family, Just as You Would Normally

When it’s time for the streaming service, just log on with your family and watch from home! You can broadcast the service from your computer, but if you have a smart TV, you may also want to watch it on the big screen, so that it’s easier for everyone in the household to see.

Even though you’re watching church from the comfort of your home, you still may want to dress smartly, just as you would if you were attending church in person.

Feel free to behave just as you normally would, so it’s encouraged to pray, sing along with the hymns, and listen intently to the sermon.

Stick Around for the Fellowship

One thing many of us enjoy about church is the fellowship—chatting to those around us and getting to know fellow churchgoers over a cup of coffee. However, the good news is that you can still connect with others online!

Most churches will offer small prayer groups or fellowship sessions before or after the service, letting you break into groups online to talk to one another via video. Life can be lonely during COVID, so it’s a great idea to get to know others online.
