Database of services for Suffolk churches
With most in-person worship services having been canceled in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, many churches have moved to offer services, sermons and other worship opportunities online through their websites or social media platforms.
The Suffolk News-Herald has put together a database of Suffolk churches that are holding online and drive-up services, as well as other virtual activities. Let us know what your church is doing to carry on its ministry during the outbreak.
The online database lists, where available, the name of the church, its address, phone number, email address and website, along with its social media pages and whether each church is livestreaming or posting videos of its services, sermons or other events, and whether it is offering drive-up services.
If your church is not listed and is offering drive-up or online worship opportunities, or if you have updated information or links to this database, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
This database will be available online on our website, and it will be updated as new information becomes available. The links – some of which have been shortened into bit.ly links for space reasons – will be clickable to take you directly to the particular webpage you are looking for.
