Here, we bring you up to date with prayer and devotion in Shepparton’s places of worship for the current time of Covid 19 with Stage 3 restrictions. Christian, Buddhist, Muslim and Sikh communities are referenced.
Due the Prime Minister’s Press Conference on 3 April 2020, worship that is streamed live is deemed an essential service, and the proper number of ministers, priests, deacons, imams, gurbani’s will be allowed to participate in the live streaming. The Place of Worship, however, remains closed to the Public.
Update: There are a number of new links added for Christian worship in languages other than English.
Update 3 April 3:00pm
AT THE 2PM NATIONAL PRESS CONFERENCE TODAY the Prime Minister announced: “National Cabinet has decided to expand those able to conduct religious services, particularly over the Easter period. That doesn’t mean places of worship are open, but that priests and those formally involved in conducting the services’ will now be classified as essential workers.”. He also said that the 2 person restriction would be relaxed so that more people could be involved in producing the services.
Several national churches advise having a maximum of 5 persons involved, adhering to social distancing and hygiene rules. They also advise to still maintain only 2 people on screen at any one time.
