Worship on wheels: Bengaluru church embraces new normal with 'drive-in worship'

A Bengaluru church initiated 'Worship on Wheels' as a way to promote social distancing in their first post-lockdow Sunday mass. 

The service was also broadcasted live for people at home.

Drive-in worship

Worshipers attended the 'drive-in worship' initiative of Bethel AG Church in Bengaluru on SUnday.


Sunday mass was divided into five parts

The first batch was of people coming on two-wheeler at 7 am and 5 pm, the second batch was for cars commuters from 9 am to 7 pm and the third batch was for people who took public transport or walked to the church at 11 am.


Service broadcasted on screens

A priest addressed the attendees from the stage in an open plot where screens were set up for people to watch the service from their parked cars.


All measures were taken

The church urged attendees to wear masks and stay in their cars at all times.


First of its kind

It is reportedly the first-ever 'drive-in service' in India.


A successful service

The service was attended by more than 80 car-riders and a similar number of two-wheeler. A digital service was also organised for people who could not visit the church.
