COVID-19 has decisively impacted and disturbed the universally established notions and practices of being ‘church’. Unprecedented restrictions on physical gathering and lengthy lockdowns radically affected traditional means of corporate worship and fellowship and forced Christian communities to adopt newer technologies to stay connected and practise the faith.
This recording is from the 30 April 2021 webinar hosted by the Lausanne Theology Working Group on ‘The Church in a Post-COVID World’. Listen as global panelists Dr Chris Wright (UK) and Dr Mauro Meister (Brazil) reflect theologically on the challenges that faced churches around the world during the rise of the COVID-19 pandemic, highlighting some lessons learned and providing signposts to the church of the future. Additional panelists include Dr Steve Bryan (US), Dr Vhumani Magezi (South Africa), Dr Steven Chang (South Korea) and Ms Grace Al-Zoughbi Arteen (Palestine), with the webinar moderated by Dr Michael Oh, global director and CEO of Lausanne.
