Amid the pandemic churches have been having a tough time operating. At the start, all churches were required to close their doors and now only 50 people are allowed at a sermon.
Even with the relaxed regulations, some churches have decided to stay closed in an attempt to protect their members. However, a handful of people came up with a unique way to praise God while still adhering to the Covid-19 regulations.
A video was shared on Twitter by social media user @_unklekat. The clip shows people singing worship songs in the street as they attended a special type of service.
The post was captioned:
"The new way of ‘churching’."
Take a look at the video below:
The video gathered over 132 000 views and South Africans had mixed views on it. Some applauded the people for finding a way to praise God while others felt they were being disrespectful to other people living in the area.
Dumi Mlambo Khumalo, who goes by the Twitter handle @BabaDumi, commented:
"This is noise pollution. What if I want nothing to do with religion and I live on that street?"
Another tweep, @Theto_stylez, wrote:
"This is so inconsiderate though, not everyone is a Christian."
A Twitter user, @Truth_spike, responded to @Theto_stylez's post with:
"Their beautiful spirit is irritating your demons..."
