POST COVID-19: Church Services Attendance May Drop

Sam Adeyemi, senior pastor of the Daystar Christian Centre, Lagos, Nigeria, says the church will not remain the same again when the coronavirus pandemic is over.

In a live chat with BBC Yoruba recently, the clergyman said the novel coronavirus has had significant effect on the church.

According to him, some churches with huge numbers may witness significant reduction in their services after the pandemic as many of them might decide to worship God from the comfort of their homes.
“That’s an issue I have pondered upon severally because the church may not be the same again after this COVID-19 experience. As you can see, many people have been receiving messages via online broadcast from their homes. It’s no longer like before that they have to be physically present in churches,” he said.

“Now that many have been used to worshiping God from the comfort of their rooms, will they go to church when COVID-19 is finally over? Many Christians may also feel relaxed on Sundays when they usually go to church.”
