Regardless of religious denomination, Easter services are the highlight of the Church calendar, with some larger services attracting thousands of worshipers.
However large gatherings of church-goers were among the first community events affected in the attempt to stem the spread of Coronavirus, as churches were forced to shut their doors to the public.
Easter will still go on, but in a totally different format, with parishioners tuning in to live-streamed services from the isolation of their homes.
In fact St Paul’s Anglican Cathedral in Sydney set up a contingency plan in case of technology failure or further restrictions on Easter Sunday. The Easter Sunday Service was pre-recorded on April 2, some ten days early, to ensure that worshipers across the country would be able to tune into the Easter service.
