The evangelical alliance of the United Kingdom reports that the outbreak of Govt-19 has affected the practice of churches in the country. Nearly all churches returned to weekly face-to-face services (95%). However, 6 out of 10 people decide to continue offering online streaming. However, the report points out that the average face-to-face attendance of 124 participants before the epidemic has dropped to 85 by 2021. The number of people attending interview services also dropped to 92% before the outbreak. Now 68%.

Another challenge facing churches in the country is looking for volunteers. Six out of 10 church leaders say they have noticed a “decrease in volunteerism in their church.” Three out of 10 members agree to spend less time in the church environment. Possible reasons for the decline in the number of volunteers are “those who see Govt-19 as an ‘opportunity to’ retire ‘or” volunteers who have lost the habit of going to church and have changed other habits. “
