The English Presbytery of the Presbyterian Churches in Singapore is one of many churches bringing back its Holy Week programme both live and online this year.

After two years of restricted church services and programmes during Easter due to Covid restrictions, churches are finding a new gear to celebrate Easter with renewed fervour this weekend.

The easing of restrictions to onsite congregational sizes, singing and onstage worship, as well as churches’ growing aptitude in online options, mean that there are now more ways than ever to celebrate the Easter season.

From music and drama to special Bible studies, traditional church services to livestream celebrations, there is something for everyone, including families with young children, the housebound, and those who would like to invite non-believers.

Here are some choices you have to centre on Christ’s sacrifice and resurrection this Holy Week, through to Good Friday and Easter.

Worship in person: Special services
